I have created a map using MapWindows like the following:
A little explanation here, the is a map of an elderly home. The yellow boxes are room and the white rectangles inside the yellow boxes are the beds.
I have a few things that need to be done using QGIS (preferably integrated with R so that I can automate the process):
I need to check whether the beds are "appropriately" placed in the room. For example, in the "lower-left quadrant" room, the "upper-right quadrant" bed is place outside the boundary of the room, this is not appropriate and I need to fix it.
I need to count how many beds are there in one room. Can I do it in GIS/R?
I need to know if a particular bed is in the same room as another particular bed.
I have about 40 maps and a total of >2000 beds, I can't do the 3 things above manually. I wonder if some mechanical means can help.
I am using MapWindows for creating the maps, QGIS for visualization, and R for data processing (checking the dbf files for the naming of the beds, creation of csv files for giving "information" for each bed). I wonder if the 3 tools will be sufficient for the 3 tasks above.
Thanks in advance.
