get_C_intersection {CCAMLRGIS}R Documentation

Get Cartesian coordinates of lines intersection in Euclidean space

Description

Given two lines defined by the Latitudes/Longitudes of their extremities, finds the location of their intersection, in Euclidean space, using this approach: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Line-line_intersection.

Usage

get_C_intersection(Line1, Line2, Plot = TRUE)

Arguments

Line1

Vector of 4 coordinates, given in decimal degrees as:

c(Longitude_start,Latitude_start,Longitude_end,Latitude_end).

Line2

Same as Line1.

Plot

logical, if set to TRUE, plots a schematic of calculations.

Examples




#Example 1 (Intersection beyond the range of segments)
get_C_intersection(Line1=c(-30,-55,-29,-50),Line2=c(-50,-60,-40,-60))

#Example 2 (Intersection on one of the segments)
get_C_intersection(Line1=c(-30,-65,-29,-50),Line2=c(-50,-60,-40,-60))

#Example 3 (Crossed segments)
get_C_intersection(Line1=c(-30,-65,-29,-50),Line2=c(-50,-60,-25,-60))

#Example 4 (Antimeridian crossed)
get_C_intersection(Line1=c(-179,-60,-150,-50),Line2=c(-120,-60,-130,-62))

#Example 5 (Parallel lines - uncomment to test as it will return an error)
#get_C_intersection(Line1=c(0,-60,10,-60),Line2=c(-10,-60,10,-60))
