Converts a genlight object to ESRI shapefiles or kml files

Description

This function exports coordinates in a genlight object to a point shape file (including also individual meta data if available). Coordinates are provided under x@other$latlon and assumed to be in WGS84 coordinates, if not proj4 string is provided.

Usage

gl2shp(
  x,
  type = "shp",
  proj4 = "+proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs",
  outfile = "gl",
  outpath = tempdir(),
  verbose = NULL
)

Arguments

x

Name of the genlight object containing the SNP data and location data, lat longs [required].

type

Type of output 'kml' or 'shp' [default 'shp'].

proj4

Proj4string of data set (see spatialreference.org for projections) [default WGS84].

outfile

Name (path) of the output shape file [default 'gl']. shp extension is added automatically.

outpath

Path where to save the output file [default tempdir(), mandated by CRAN]. Use outpath=getwd() or outpath='.' when calling this function to direct output files to your working directory.

verbose

Verbosity: 0, silent or fatal errors; 1, begin and end; 2, progress log; 3, progress and results summary; 5, full report [default 2 or as specified using gl.set.verbosity].

Value

returns a SpatVector file
