rPopulationIndependenceK {dbmss}R Documentation

Simulations of a point pattern according to the null hypothesis of population independence defined for K

Description

Simulates of a point pattern according to the null hypothesis of population independence defined for K.

Usage

rPopulationIndependenceK(X, ReferenceType, NeighborType, CheckArguments = TRUE)

Arguments

X

A weighted, marked, planar point pattern (wmppp.object).

ReferenceType

One of the point types.

NeighborType

One of the point types.

CheckArguments

Logical; if TRUE, the function arguments are verified. Should be set to FALSE to save time in simulations for example, when the arguments have been checked elsewhere.

Details

Reference points are kept unchanged, other point positions are shifted by rshift.

Value

A new weighted, marked, planar point pattern (an object of class wmppp, see wmppp.object).

Examples

# Simulate a point pattern with two types
X <- rpoispp(50) 
PointType   <- sample(c("A", "B"), X$n, replace=TRUE)
PointWeight <- runif(X$n, min=1, max=10)
X$marks <- data.frame(PointType, PointWeight)
X <- as.wmppp(X)

par(mfrow=c(1,2))
# Plot the point pattern, using PointType as marks
plot(X, main="Original pattern, Point Type", which.marks=2)

# Randomize it
Y <- rPopulationIndependenceK(X, "A", "B")
# Points of type "A" are unchanged, points of type "B" have been moved altogether
plot(Y, main="Randomized pattern, Point Type", which.marks=2)
