There are the additional functions for obtaining digital terrain model:

  • pointDTM_get() for small areas (high resolution grid)
  • pointDTM100_download() for voivodeships areas (low resolution grid)
  • minmaxDTM_get() to find the minimum and maximum elevation (small areas)

The names of administrative units and their IDs can be obtained using these functions:

  • voivodeship_names() (16)
  • county_names() (380)
  • commune_names() (2477)

Installation

You can install the released version from CRAN with:

install.packages("rgugik")

You can install the development version from GitHub with:

# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("kadyb/rgugik")

Usage

Orthophotomap

  • ortho_request() - returns a data frame with metadata and links to the orthoimages for a given geometry (point, line or polygon)
  • tile_download() - downloads orthoimages based on the data frame obtained using the ortho_request() function
library(rgugik)
library(sf)
library(raster)

polygon_path = system.file("datasets/search_area.gpkg", package = "rgugik")
polygon = read_sf(polygon_path)

req_df = ortho_request(polygon)

# select the oldest image
req_df = req_df[req_df$year == 2001, ]

# print metadata
