recenter-methods: Methods for Function recenter in Package 'sp'

Description Methods Examples

Description

Methods for function recenter in package sp to shift or re-center geographical coordinates for a Pacific view. All longitudes < 0 are added to 360, to avoid for instance parts of Alaska being represented on the far left and right of a plot because they have values straddling 180 degrees. In general, using a projected coordinate reference system is to be preferred, but this method permits a geographical coordinate reference system to be used. This idea was suggested by Greg Snow, and corresponds to the two world representations in the maps package.

Methods

obj = "SpatialPolygons"

recenter a SpatialPolygons object

obj = "Polygons"

recenter a Polygons object

obj = "Polygon"

recenter an Polygon object

obj = "SpatialLines"

recenter a SpatialLines object

obj = "Lines"

recenter a Lines object

obj = "Line"

recenter an Line object
