Constructs sf of LINESTRING objects, a helper for
sf_linestring() with a
sorted matrix or data.frame
logical indicating if the non-geometry and non-id columns should be kept. if TRUE you must supply the geometry and id columns, and only the first row of each geometry is kept. See Keeping Properties.
vector of column names to turn into a list.
sf object of LINESTRING geometries
These are simpler versions of the main functions
sf_multipolygon() for input data frame or matrix that contains columns
appropriately of 'x', 'y', 'z', 'm', ' multipolygon_id', polygon_id',
'multilinestring_id', 'linestring_id', 'multipoint_id'.
This puts the onus of the naming and identification of entities onto the input data set, rather than when calling the creator function. This has pros and cons, so is not necessarily always 'simpler'. Please choose the appropriate constructor for the context you have. For examples a data frame from the real world with columns 'lon', 'lat', 'line' will be best used with
sf_linestring(df, x = "lon", y = "lat", linestring_id = "line")
whereas a heavy user of sfheaders might always create a data frame with 'x',
'y', 'linestring_id' precisely because they are expecting to call
sf_line(df) and no further work is required. These are very different
contexts and both equally valid.
Some columns are mandatory, such as 'x' and 'y' (always), while others depend on the output type where each column for that type is mandatory. The 'z' and/or 'm' values are included for 'XYZ', 'XYM', or 'XYZM' geometry types if and as they are present.
In summary these helpers:
do not require arguments declaring column names.
use assumed default column names, with no variation or absence allowed for a given type.
m if present.
close = FALSE and
keep = FALSE same as proper constructors.
sf_pt() does not accept a flat vector for a single
require a matrix or data frame with complete column names.
None of the helpers allow partial name matching for column names.
sfheaders functions do not perform any validity checks on the geometries. Nor do they set Coordinate Reference Systems, EPSG, PROJ4 or precision attributes.
The data.frame and matrices you send into the sfheader functions must be ordered.
keep = TRUE will retain any columns not specified as a
coordinate (x, y, z, m) or an id (e.g., linestring_id, polygon_id) of the input
You can use
list_columns to specify which of the properties will be turned into
a list, thus keeping all the values in the column. For columns not specified in
only the first row of the column is kept
sf_* functions assume the input
obj is a long data.frame / matrix,
where any properties are repeated down the table for the same geometry.
