open_gdalR Documentation

Open GDAL file

Description

open_gdal creates object of ursaRaster class, and prepares connections for data reading.

Usage

open_gdal(fname, verbose = FALSE)

ursa_open(fname, verbose = FALSE)

Arguments

fname

Character. Filename; full-name or short-name.

verbose

Logical. verbose=TRUE provides some additional information on console. Default is FALSE.

Details

ursa_open is a synonym to open_gdal. Generally, both function names are abridged version of ursa_open_dgal.

open_gdal doesn't read data. Data can be read later using Extract operator [.

If argument fname is ENVI .hdr Labelled Raster then either open_gdal or open_envi can be used. The former provides external implementation for data reading via GDAL in rgdal package.
