in.out {mgcv} | R Documentation |
Tests whether each of a set of points lie within a region defined by one or more (possibly nested) polygons. Points count as ‘inside’ if they are interior to an odd number of polygons.
in.out(bnd,x)
bnd |
A two column matrix, the rows of which define the vertices of polygons defining the boundary of a region.
Different polygons should be separated by an |

A two column matrix. Each row is a point to test for inclusion in the region defined by |
The algorithm works by counting boundary crossings (using compiled C code).
A logical vector of length nrow(x)
