Distance from points

The function calculates the distance from a set of points to all cells of a Raster* object.

The distance unit is in meters if the coordinate reference system (crs) of the Raster* object is (+proj=longlat) or assumed to be if the crs is NA. In all other cases it is in the units defined by the crs (which typically is meters).

Keywords

Usage
distanceFromPoints(object, xy, filename='', ...)
Arguments
object

Raster object

xy

matrix of x and y coordinates, or a SpatialPoints* object.

filename

character. Optional filename for the output RasterLayer

Additional arguments as for writeRaster

Details

Distances for longlat data are computed on the WGS84 spheroid using GeographicLib (Karney, 2013)
