## S3 method for class 'sf'
rbind(..., deparse.level = 1)

## S3 method for class 'sf'
cbind(..., deparse.level = 1, sf_column_name = NULL)

st_bind_cols(...)

Arguments

...

objects to bind; note that for the rbind and cbind methods, all objects have to be of class sf; see dotsMethods

deparse.level

integer; see rbind

sf_column_name

character; specifies active geometry; passed on to st_sf

Details

both rbind and cbind have non-standard method dispatch (see cbind): the rbind or cbind method for sf objects is only called when all arguments to be binded are of class sf.

If you need to cbind e.g. a data.frame to an sf, use data.frame directly and use st_sf on its result, or use bind_cols; see examples.

st_bind_cols is deprecated; use cbind instead.

Value

cbind called with multiple sf objects warns about multiple geometry columns present when the geometry column to use is not specified by using argument sf_column_name; see also st_sf.
