Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

Description

Compute quantiles for the cell values of a RasterLayer. If you want to compute quantiles for each cell across a number of layers, you can use calc(x, fun=quantile).

Usage

1

Arguments

x

Raster object

...

Additional arguments: na.rm=TRUE, ncells=NULL, and additional arguments to the stats::quantile function, see quantile

ncells can be used to set the number of cells to be sampled, for very large raster datasets.

Value

A vector of quantiles
