Snap points to their nearest lines (edited from maptools)
snapPointsToLines2(points, lines, idField = NA, snap_dist = 300, max_iter = 10)
A feature collection of points
A feature collection of linestrings
The name of the column to use as index for the lines
A distance (float) given to find for each point its nearest line in a spatial index. A too big value will produce unnecessary distance calculations and a too short value will lead to more iterations to find neighbours. In extrem cases, a too short value could lead to points not associated with lines (index = -1).
An integer indicating how many iteration the search algorithm must perform in the spatial index to find lines close to a point. At each iteration, the snap_dist is doubled to find candidates.
