This function can be used to apply the predict method of hopefully any fitted predictive model pixel by pixel to a stack of grids representing the explanatory variables. It is intended to be called primarily by `multi.local.function`

or `multi.focal.function`

.

optional character string: Some predict methods (e.g. |

`grid.predict`

is a simple wrapper function. First it binds the arguments in `...`

together in a `data.frame`

with the raw predictor variables that have been read from their grids by the caller, `multi.local.function`

(or `multi.focal.function`

). Then it calls the optional `trafo`

function to transform or combine predictor variables (e.g. perform log transformations, ratioing, arithmetic operations such as calculating the NDVI). Finally the `predfun`

(or, typically, the default `predict`

method of `fit`

) is called, handing over the `fit`

, the predictor `data.frame`

, and the optional `control.predict`

arguments.

`grid.predict`

returns the result of the call to `predfun`

or the default `predict`

method.

Though `grid.predict`

can in principle deal with `predict`

methods returning factor variables, its usual caller `multi.local.function`

/ `multi.focal.function`

cannot; classification models should be dealt with by setting a `type="prob"`

(for `rpart`

) or `type="response"`

(for logistic regression and logistic additive model) argument, for example (see second Example below).
