Hi everyone, posting on here for the first time and looking for some help with trying to understand why RStudio is freezing/ getting stuck when I run a large operation.
I am using spatial data. I have a SpatialLinesDataFrame dataset of all roads in a city. I also created a lattice of 10,000 points within the city boundaries which I generated buffers of 50m, 100m etc around. I am trying to clip the road segments by the point buffers and calculate the total distance of the road lines within each point buffer. When I run this operation with a lattice of 10,000 points RStudio stops processing the code after a while, and this has happened when I try on multiple computers. I can run this code fine (takes a while) with 5,000 points but the goal is to go as large as possible.
If anyone has any ideas as to whether this is something I can deal with inside R Studio (as opposed to a larger computer issue), please let me know. (BTW it is not my computer RAM which is quite large).
Thanks in advance!
