Select (and optionally rename) attributes/layers in Spat* objects, using a concise mini-language. See Methods.

Usage

# S3 method for SpatRaster
select(.data, ...)

# S3 method for SpatVector
select(.data, ...)

Arguments

.data

A SpatRaster created with terra::rast() or a SpatVector created with terra::vect().

...

tidy-select One or more unquoted expressions separated by commas. Layer/attribute names can be used as if they were positions in the Spat* object, so expressions like x:y can be used to select a range of layers/attributes.

Value

A Spat* object of the same class than .data. See Methods.

terra equivalent

terra::subset()

Methods

Implementation of the generic dplyr::select() function.

SpatRaster

Select (and rename) layers of a SpatRaster. The result is a SpatRaster with the same extent, resolution and crs than .data. Only the number (and possibly the name) of layers is modified.

SpatVector

This method relies on the implementation of dplyr::select() method on the sf package. The result is a SpatVector with the selected (and possibly renamed) attributes on the function call.

See also

dplyr::select(), terra::subset()

Other dplyr methods: filter(), mutate(), pull(), relocate(), rename(), slice()

Other single table verbs: filter(), mutate(), rename(), slice()
