rpygeo_load: Load output of ArcPy functions into R session

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/rpygeo_reticulate.R

Description

This function loads the output of an ArcPy function into the R session. Raster files are loaded as raster objects and vector files as sf objects.

Usage

1

Arguments

data

reticulate object or filename of the ArcPy function output

Details

Currently files and datasets stored in file geodatabases are supported.

Supported file formats:

Supported datasets:

Esri has not released an API for raster datasets in file geodatabases. rpygeo_load converts a raster dataset to a temporary ASCII raster first and then loads it into the R session. Be aware that this can take a long time for large raster datasets.

This function can be used with the %>% operator from the dplyr package. The %>% operator forwards the reticulate object from the ArcPy function to rpygeo_load (s. Example 1). If used without the %>% operator an reticulate object can be specified for the data parameter (s. Example 2). It is also possible to use the filename of the ArcPy function output (s. Example 3). For Arc/Info Binary Grids the data parameter is just the name of the directory, which contains the adf files.

Value

raster or sf object
