Taper information is stored in a data frame within the
taper slot of a
"standingTree" object. This function lets one
interpolate diameters at given lengths/heights, or vice versa from the
taper data. This is done using either the built-in taper function or
splines, depending on the value of the
solidType slot in the
object. Please see the methods in
taperInterpolate-methods for more details.
See methods for the possibilites of this signature argument.
Just gobbled for now.
Please note that the routine will throw an error if the points you select for interpolation are not found in the stem.
solidType = NULL then the user has supplied their own taper
data, and splines are used for the interpolation. Otherwise, the
built-in taper function is used since the taper data were generated
A numeric vector with the interpolated diameters or lengths/heights.
