```Hi Celine,
Perhaps if you modify your return value like this:

xy<-as.data.frame(list(x,y))
names(xy)<-c("x","y")
return(xy)

I would like to have the x,y coordinates of individuals, Under these conditions : the distance to the reference coordinates must be under or equal to 50 meters + the value of G must be bigger or equal to 16.
