read.asciigrid(fname, as.image = FALSE, plot.image = FALSE, colname = fname,
 proj4string = CRS(as.character(NA)))
write.asciigrid(x, fname, attr = 1, na.value = -9999, ...)

Arguments

fname

file name

as.image

logical; if FALSE, a list is returned, ready to be shown with the image command; if FALSE an object of class SpatialGridDataFrame-class is returned

plot.image

logical; if TRUE, an image of the map is plotted

colname

alternative name for data column if not file name

proj4string

A CRS object setting the projection arguments of the Spatial Grid returned

x

object of class SpatialGridDataFrame

attr

attribute column; if missing, the first column is taken; a name or a column number may be given

na.value

numeric; value given to missing valued cells in the resulting map

...

arguments passed to write.table, which is used to write the numeric data

Value

read.asciigrid returns the grid map read; either as an object of class SpatialGridDataFrame-class or, if as.image is TRUE, as list with components x, y and z.
