Return points inside or outside a polygon.
- A points data set
- A polygon data set
out=TRUE, return the points outside the polygon, else the points inside.
- If points fall exactly on polygon boundaries, the default NULL gives arbitrary assignments. If TRUE, then all points "on" boundaries are set as within the polygon, if FALSE, outside.
- Do not report which points are on boundary for non-NULL bound
inout, then selects the appropriate sub-set of points.
pip returns the points of
pts that lie inside (or outside with
poly. Compare this with
inpip, which returns
the indices of
the points in the polygon, and
inout which returns a logical vector
indicating whether points are inside or outside.
