What is a good way to spatially sample N points of distance less than
X from a given polyline?
I'm thinking I should construct a polygonal buffer, and then sample
within that, e.g., with spsample(). But how can I construct such a
buffer in R? Can the method be extended to multiple polylines (as in a
I haven't found anything in the 'spatstat' or 'sp' packages about
using polyline(s) as the basis for sampling, other than for sampling
*on* the polyline(s).
Many thanks for any & all assistance. Many many thanks for for an
example with 'meuse'!
