stampr-package: stampr: Spatial Temporal Analysis of Moving Polygons

Description Details Author(s) References


The Package stampr provides tools for performing spatial temporal analysis of moving polygons. These tools allow the calculation of directional relationships, shape indices, and other basic functionality, such as global change metrics. More details about each of these functions can be found in its help documentation.


stampr's functions utilize the SpatialPolygonsDataFrame objects from the package sp. Polygon relationships are still understudied in the field of geographic information science, but hopefully stampr can provide users with a platform for new developments and applied research looking at interesting geographical phenomena.
