spdf2turtles(spdf)

# S4 method for SpatialPointsDataFrame
spdf2turtles(spdf)

Arguments

spdf

SpatialPointsDataFrame object representing moving agents.

Value

AgentMatrix object representing the moving agents (coordinates and data) as contained in spdf.

Details

If the spdf does not contain the variables created with createTurtles(), these variables will be created with the default values as in createTurtles().

Examples

sp1 <- SpatialPointsDataFrame(coords = cbind(x = c(1, 2, 3), y = c(1, 2, 3)), data = cbind.data.frame(age = c(0, 0, 3), sex = c("F", "F", "M"))) t1 <- spdf2turtles(spdf = sp1)
