Replace NA values with values of other layers

For Raster* objects: Replace NA values in the first Raster object (x) with the values of the second (y), and so forth for additional Rasters. If x has multiple layers, the subsequent Raster objects should have the same number of layers, or have a single layer only (which will be recycled).

For SpatialPolygons* objects: Areas of x that overlap with y are replaced by (or intersected with) y.

Keywords
methods, spatial
Usage
# S4 method for RasterLayer,RasterLayer
cover(x, y, ..., filename='')

# S4 method for RasterStackBrick,Raster cover(x, y, ..., filename='')

# S4 method for SpatialPolygons,SpatialPolygons cover(x, y, ..., identity=FALSE)

Arguments
x

Raster* or SpatialPolygons* object

y

Same as x

filename

character. Output filename (optional)

...

Same as x. If x is a Raster* object, also additional arguments as for writeRaster

identity

logical. If TRUE overlapping areas are intersected rather than replaced

Value

RasterLayer or RasterBrick object, or SpatialPolygons object
