Set operations on neighbors list objects

intersect.nb(nb.obj1,nb.obj2)
union.nb(nb.obj1,nb.obj2)
setdiff.nb(nb.obj1,nb.obj2)
complement.nb(nb.obj)

Arguments

nb.obj

a neighbor list created from any of the neighborhood list funtions

nb.obj1

a neighbor list created from any of the neighborhood list funtions

nb.obj2

a neighbor list created from any of the neighborhood list funtions

Details

These functions perform set operations on each element of a neighborlist. The arguments must be neighbor lists created from the same coordinates, and the region.id attributes must be identical.

Value

nb.obj

A new neighborlist created from the set operations on the input neighbor list(s)
