Convert a bb specification to a bbox specification

Share:

Description

In ggmap, all maps (class ggmap) have the bb attribute, a data frame bounding box specification in terms of the bottom left and top right points of the spatial extent. This function converts this specification to a named double vector (with names left, bottom, right, top) specification that is used in some querying functions (e.g. get_stamenmap).

Usage

1
bb2bbox(bb)

Arguments

bb

a bounding box in bb format (see examples)

Value

a bounding box in bbox format (see examples)
