The function onverts SpatialLinesDataFrame to SpatialPointsDataFrame with points at the midpoints of the line segments.

SpatialLinesMidPoints(sldf)

Arguments

sldf

A SpatialLines or SpatialLinesDataFrame object

Details

The function builds a SpatialPointsDataFrame from the midpoints of Line objects belonging to Lines objects in an object inheriting from a Spatial Lines object. The output data slot contains an index variable showing which Lines object the midpoints belong to.

Value

A SpatialPointsDataFrame object created from the input object.

Examples

xx <- readShapeLines(system.file("shapes/fylk-val.shp", package="maptools")[1], proj4string=CRS("+proj=utm +zone=33 +datum=WGS84"))
#> Warning: readShapeLines is deprecated; use rgdal::readOGR or sf::st_read
plot(xx, col="blue")
spdf <- SpatialLinesMidPoints(xx)
#> Warning: CRS object has comment, which is lost in output
plot(spdf, col="orange", add=TRUE)
