Re: this previous post, sorry my fault... fn applies to Spatial* objects, not "ppp" objects - my apologies.

I get an error when calling function 'spTransform' -- from package {rgdal}. I've used spTransform recently w/ no problem, to convert coordinates from one CRS to coords of another. Has this function been deprecated, or is there some other method?  

My code below. I'll lean in for a dope slap if I've missed something simple! 
Thanks for any help.

> summary(pp)
Planar point pattern: 18 points
Average intensity 0.0928 points per square kilometer  

Window: polygonal boundary
single connected closed polygon with 7995 vertices
enclosing rectangle: [687.8542, 719.5667]x[4886.808, 4925.33]kilometer
Window area =  193.967 square kilometer 
Unit of length: 1 kilometer
