extractIndex: Indexing to extract values of a Raster* object

Description Methods See Also Examples

Description

These are shorthand methods that call other methods that should normally be used, such as getValues, extract, crop.

object[i] can be used to access values of a Raster* object, using cell numbers. You can also use row and column numbers as index, using object[i,j] or object[i,] or object[,j]. In addition you can supply an Extent, SpatialPolygons, SpatialLines or SpatialPoints object.

If drop=TRUE (the default) cell values are returned (a vector for a RasterLayer, a matrix for a RasterStack or RasterBrick). If drop=FALSE a Raster* object is returned that has the extent covering the requested cells, and with all other non-requested cells within this extent set to NA.

If you supply a RasterLayer, its values will be used as logical (TRUE/FALSE) indices if both Raster objects have the same extent and resolution; otherwise the cell values within the extent of the RasterLayer are returned.

Double brackes '[[ ]]' can be used to extract one or more layers from a multi-layer object.

Methods

x[i]

x[i,j]

Arguments

x a Raster* object
i cell number(s), row number(s), a (logical) RasterLayer, Spatial* object
j column number(s) (only available if i is (are) a row number(s))
drop If TRUE, cell values are returned. Otherwise, a Raster* object is returned
