Description Usage Arguments See Also Examples

Description

For Raster* objects x and y, atan2(y, x) returns the angle in radians for the tangent y/x, handling the case when x is zero. See Trig

See Math-methods for other trigonometric and mathematical functions that can be used with Raster* objects.
