## 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. When x is a RasterLayer, if format='matrix' or format='m', a matrix is returned instead of a vector. If format='matrix', it is a nrow x ncol matrix. If format='m' it is a 1 column matrix (the benefit is that the type of output is now the same for all Raster objects)

lyrs

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

...

additional arguments (none implemented)

Value

matrix or vector (if (x=RasterLayer), unless format='matrix')
