Stratified regular sample on a grid

Sample points from xy, using a grid (raster) as stratification. Up to n points are sampled from each stratum (cell). For "chessboard" sampling (i.e. sampling from half the cells), use the argument chess='black', or chess='white'.

Keywords
spatial
Usage
gridSample(xy, r, n=1, chess='')
Arguments
xy
A two column matrix or data.frame with x and y coordinates (or longitude and latitude), or a SpatialPoints* object
r
Raster* object
n
Maximum number of samples per cell
chess
Character. '', 'black', or 'white'. If 'black' or 'white', "chess-board" sampling is used. I.e. only the 'white' fields, or only the 'black' fields are sampled. Cell number 1 (the upper left corner of r) is white.
Value

A two column matrix with x and y coordinates (or longitude and latitude)
