 Your second error is not telling us what your first error was! -We
dont know how you were using as.ppp and if you were using it right.
You need to create a window (here I just take the bounds of your
points - the  true window is probably something different) and then
call as.ppp thus:

spat = as.ppp(point.df,o)
> spat
 planar point pattern: 19 points
window: rectangle = [749390, 760000] x [7275500, 7277100] units
