Methods for plotting results of spatial analysis in Google Earth

Description

The method writes inputs and outputs of spatial analysis (a list of point, gridded and/or polygon data usually) to KML and opens the KML file in Google Earth (or any other default package used to view KML/KMZ files).

Details

This is a generic function to plot various spatial and spatio-temporal R objects that contain both inputs and outputs of spatial analysis. The resulting plots (referred to as ‘views’) are expected to be cartographically complete as they should contain legends, and data and model descriptions. In principle, plotKML works with both simple spatial objects, and complex objects such as "SpatialPredictions", "SpatialVectorsSimulations", "RasterBrickSimulations", "RasterBrickTimeSeries", "SpatialMaxEntOutput" and similar. To further customize visualizations consider combining the lower level functions kml_open, kml_close, kml_compress, kml_screen into your own plotKML() method.

All ST-classes are coerced to the STIDF format and hence use the plotKML method for STIDFs.

Note

To prepare a list of objects of class "SpatialPointsDataFrame", "SpatialLinesDataFrame", "SpatialPolygonsDataFrame", or "SpatialPixelsDataFrame" consider using the GSIF::tile function. Writting large spatial objects via plotKML can be time consuming. Please refer to the package manual for more information.
