Generate an ellipse from center coordinates, major and minor axis radii, and angle rotation.

## Usage

ellipse(x = 0, y = 0, sx = 2, sy = 1, rotation = 0, n = 100)

st_ellipse(geometry, sx, sy, rotation = 0, n = 100)

## Arguments

x

longitude of center point

y

latitude of center point

sx

sy

rotation

the degree of rotation of the ellipse

n

the number of coordinates to generate for the ellipse

geometry

an sf ST_POINT geometry. Can be sfg, sfc, or sf object

an sf object

## Details

ellipse() returns a matrix of point locations defining the ellipse. st_ellipse() returns an sf object with LINE geography of the ellipse. Increasing n increases the number of points generated to define the ellipse shape.

ellipse() function is adapted from ggVennDiagram.
