Get the centroids of polygons or lines, or centroid-like points that are guaranteed to be inside the polygons or on the lines.
# S4 method for SpatVector centroids(x, inside=FALSE)
TRUE the points returned are guaranteed to be inside the polygons or on the lines, but they are not the true centroids. True centroids may be outside a polygon, for example when a polygon is "bean shaped", and they are unlikely to be on their line
SpatVector of points
f <- system.file("ex/lux.shp", package="terra") v <- vect(f) x <- centroids(v) y <- centroids(v, TRUE)
