buffer: Create a buffer around vector objects or raster patches

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

Description

Calculate a buffer around all cells that are not NA in a SpatRaster, or around the geometries of a SpatVector (currently only implemented for points)

Note that the distance unit of the buffer width parameter is meters if the CRS is (+proj=longlat), and in map units (typically also meters) if not.

## S4 method for signature 'SpatRaster'
buffer(x, width, filename="", ...)

## S4 method for signature 'SpatVector'
buffer(x, width, quadsegs=10)

Arguments

x

SpatRaster or SpatVector

width

numeric. Unit is meter if x has a longitude/latitude CRS, or mapunits in other cases. Should be > 0 for SpatRaster

filename

character. Output filename

...

additional arguments for writing files as in writeRaster

quadsegs

positive integer. Number of line segments to use to draw a quart circle

Value

SpatRaster
