RasterBrickSimulations-class {plotKML}R Documentation

A class for spatial simulations containing equiprobable gridded features

Description

A class containing input and output maps containing multiple realizations of the same feature. Objects of this class can be directly visualized in Google Earth by using the plotKML-method.

Slots

variable:

character; variable name

sampled:

object of class "SpatialLines"; one or more lines (cross sections) that can be used to visualize how the values change in space

realizations:

object of class "RasterBrick"; multiple realizations of the same feature

Methods

plotKML

signature(obj = "RasterBrickSimulations"): plots all objects in Google Earth
