Given a list of spatial neighbour links (a neighbours list of object type nb), the function returns the Euclidean distances along the links in a list of the same form as the neighbours list. If longlat = TRUE, Great Circle distances are used.

nbdists(nb, coords, longlat = NULL)

Arguments

nb

an object of class nb

coords

matrix of point coordinates, an object inheriting from SpatialPoints or an "sf" or "sfc" object; if the "sf" or "sfc" object geometries are in geographical coordinates (sf::st_is_longlat(x) == TRUE and sf::sf_use_s2() == TRUE), s2 will be used to find distances https://github.com/r-spatial/s2/issues/125

longlat

TRUE if point coordinates are longitude-latitude decimal degrees, in which case distances are measured in kilometers; if coords is a SpatialPoints object, the value is taken from the object itself

Value

A list with class nbdist
