Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/mkdeFunctions.R

Description

Set the upper bounds in the z-dimension for each location in the x and y dimensions from a raster.

Usage

1
setMaximumZfromRaster(mkde.obj, raster.layer)	

Arguments

mkde.obj

2D or 3D MKDE object created with initialize3DMKDE or initialize3DMKDE, respectively

raster.layer

A RasterLayer object representing the lower bounds of the space the animal may occupy in the z-dimension.

Details

This function sets the upper bounds of the space the animal may occupy in the z-dimension. For example, the ascii.raster.filez argument may represent a raster for elevation for subterranean animals, or other surface.

Value

An updated MKDE list object is returned.
