Description Objects from the Class Slots Methods Author(s) Examples

Description

Basic class for storing soil profile collections, associated site data, and metadata.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("SoilProfileCollection", ...).

Slots

idcol:

Object of class "character" the name of the column used to uniquely identify profiles

depthcols:

Object of class "character" with the names of columns containing the horizon top and bottom boundaries

metadata:

Object of class "data.frame" with collection-level metadata, having a single row, and user-defined columns

horizons:

Object of class "data.frame" with 1 or more rows per profile

site:

Object of class "data.frame" with 1 row per profile

sp:

Object of class "SpatialPoints" with 1 row per profile

diagnostic:

Object of class "data.frame" with 0 or more rows per profile
