Description

Similar to ST_CollectionExtract in PostGIS. If there are no sub-geometries of the specified type, an empty geometry is returned.

st_collection_extract(
  x,
  type = c("POLYGON", "POINT", "LINESTRING"),
  warn = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'sfg'
st_collection_extract(
  x,
  type = c("POLYGON", "POINT", "LINESTRING"),
  warn = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'sfc'
st_collection_extract(
  x,
  type = c("POLYGON", "POINT", "LINESTRING"),
  warn = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'sf'
st_collection_extract(
  x,
  type = c("POLYGON", "POINT", "LINESTRING"),
  warn = FALSE
)

Arguments

x

an object of class sf, sfc or sfg that has mixed geometry (GEOMETRY or GEOMETRYCOLLECTION).

type

character; one of "POLYGON", "POINT", "LINESTRING"

warn

logical; if TRUE, warn if attributes are assigned to sub-geometries when casting (see st_cast)

Value

An object having the same class as x, with geometries consisting only of elements of the specified type. For sfg objects, an sfg object is returned if there is only one geometry of the specified type, otherwise the geometries are combined into an sfc object of the relevant type. If any subgeometries in the input are MULTI, then all of the subgeometries in the output will be MULTI.

## With sf objects

## With sfc objects
st_collection_extract(st_geometry(aa), "POLYGON")

## A GEOMETRY of single types

	st_sf(a = 3, geom = st_sfc(poly1)),

## A GEOMETRY of mixed single types and GEOMETRYCOLLECTIONS
cc <- rbind(aa, bb)

st_collection_extract(cc, "POLYGON")
