Pencil Layer

Description

Create a pencil layer. This function transforms a POLYGON or MULTIPOLYGON sf object into a MULTILINESTRING one.

Usage

getPencilLayer(x, size = 100, buffer = 1000, lefthanded = TRUE)

Arguments

x

an sf object, a simple feature collection (POLYGON or MULTIPOLYGON).

size

density of the penciling. Median number of points used to build the MULTILINESTRING.

buffer

buffer around each polygon. This buffer (in map units) is used to take sample points. A negative value adds a margin between the penciling and the original polygons borders

lefthanded

if TRUE the penciling is done left-handed style.

Value

A MULTILINESTRING sf object is returned.

Examples

library(sf)
mtq <- st_read(system.file("gpkg/mtq.gpkg", package="cartography"))
mtq_pencil <- getPencilLayer(x = mtq)
plot(st_geometry(mtq_pencil), col = 1:8)
plot(st_geometry(mtq), add = TRUE)

typoLayer(x = mtq_pencil, var="STATUS", 
          col = c("aquamarine4", "yellow3","wheat"),
          legend.values.order = c("Prefecture",
                                  "Sub-prefecture", 
                                  "Simple municipality"),
          legend.pos = "topright",
          legend.title.txt = "Status")
plot(st_geometry(mtq), add = TRUE, ldy=2)
layoutLayer(title = "Municipality Status")
