xyFromCell(object, cell, spatial=FALSE, ...)

Arguments

object

Raster* object (or a SpatialPixels* or SpatialGrid* object)

col

column number; or vector of column numbers. If missing, the x coordinates for all columns are returned

row

row number; or vector of row numbers. If missing, the y coordinates for all rows are returned

cell

cell number(s)

spatial

If spatial=TRUE, xyFromCell returns a SpatialPoints object instead of a matrix

...

additional arguments. None implemented

Details

Cell numbers start at 1 in the upper left corner, and increase from left to right, and then from top to bottom. The last cell number equals the number of cells of the Raster* object.

Value

xFromCol, yFromCol, xFromCell, yFromCell: vector of x or y coordinates

xyFromCell: matrix(x,y) with coordinate pairs
