specificNumPerPatch: Initiate a specific number of agents in a map of patches

Description

Instantiate a specific number of agents per patch. The user can either supply a table of how many to initiate in each patch, linked by a column in that table called pops.

Usage

specificNumPerPatch(patches, numPerPatchTable = NULL, numPerPatchMap = NULL)

Arguments

patches
RasterLayer of patches, with some sort of a patch id.
numPerPatchTable
A data.frame or data.table with a column named pops that matches the patches patch ids, and a second column num.in.pop with population size in each patch.
numPerPatchMap
A RasterLayer exactly the same as patches but with agent numbers rather than ids as the cell values per patch.

Value

A raster with 0s and 1s, where the 1s indicate starting locations of agents following the numbers above.

Examples

Run this code
library(raster)
library(data.table)
Ntypes <- 4
ras <- randomPolygons(numTypes = Ntypes)
#Plot(ras, new = TRUE)

# Use numPerPatchTable
patchDT <- data.table(pops = 1:Ntypes, num.in.pop = c(1, 3, 5, 7))
rasAgents <- specificNumPerPatch(ras, patchDT)
rasAgents[is.na(rasAgents)] <- 0
#Plot(rasAgents)
library(testthat)
expect_true(all(unname(table(ras[rasAgents])) == patchDT$num.in.pop))

# Use numPerPatchMap
rasPatches <- ras
for (i in 1:Ntypes) {
  rasPatches[rasPatches==i] <- patchDT$num.in.pop[i]
}
#Plot(ras, rasPatches, new = TRUE)
rasAgents <- specificNumPerPatch(ras, numPerPatchMap = rasPatches)
rasAgents[is.na(rasAgents)] <- 0
#Plot(rasAgents)
