While it is sometimes necessary to get the actual intersection geometry, it
may other times only be necessary to query whether an intersection exists.
This is in general much faster than checking if `intersection()`

returns
`NULL`

. Further, it is not bounded by the same constraint that an exact
intersection must be constructable so a wider range of geometries are
supported for the predicate. If the query is not possible it will return `NA`

rather than an error

has_intersection(x, y) x %is_intersecting% y

# Example of the predicate t <- triangle(point(0, 0), point(1, 1), point(0, 1)) l <- line(1, -1, c(0, 1, 2)) has_intersection(t, l)#> [1] TRUE TRUE FALSE# Use binary operator instead t %is_intersecting% l#> [1] TRUE TRUE FALSE#> [1] TRUE TRUE FALSE
