## S3 method for class 'STFDF'
unstack(x, form, which = 1, ...)
## S3 method for class 'STFDF'
as.data.frame(x, row.names, ...)

Arguments

x

object of class STFDF

form

formula; can be omitted

which

column name or number to have unstacked

row.names

row.names for the data.frame returned

...

arguments passed on to the functions unstack or as.data.frame

Value

unstack returns the data in wide format, with each row representing a spatial entity and each column a time; see unstack for details and default behaviour.

as.data.frame returns the data.frame in long format, where the coordinates of the spatial locations (or line starting coordinates, or polygon center points) and time stamps are recycled accordingly.
