## S4 method for signature 'RasterLayer'
getValuesBlock(x, row=1, nrows=1, col=1, ncols=(ncol(x)-col+1), format='')

## S4 method for signature 'RasterBrick'
getValuesBlock(x, row=1, nrows=1, col=1, ncols=(ncol(x)-col+1), lyrs)

## S4 method for signature 'RasterStack'
getValuesBlock(x, row=1, nrows=1, col=1, ncols=(ncol(x)-col+1), lyrs)

Arguments

x

Raster* object

row

positive integer. Row number to start from, should be between 1 and nrow(x)

nrows

postive integer. How many rows? Default is 1

col

postive integer. Column number to start from, should be between 1 and ncol(x)

ncols

postive integer. How many columns? Default is the number of colums left after the start column

format

character. If format='matrix', a matrix is returned instead of a vector

lyrs

integer (vector). Which layers? Default is all layers (1:nlayers(x))
