st_join

0th

Percentile

spatial join, spatial filter

spatial join, spatial filter

Usage
st_join(x, y, join, ...)

# S3 method for sf st_join( x, y, join = st_intersects, ..., suffix = c(".x", ".y"), left = TRUE, largest = FALSE )

st_filter(x, y, ...)

# S3 method for sf st_filter(x, y, ..., .predicate = st_intersects)

Arguments
x

object of class sf

y

object of class sf

join

geometry predicate function with the same profile as st_intersects; see details

...

arguments passed on to the join or .predicate function, e.g. prepared, or a pattern for st_relate

suffix

length 2 character vector; see merge

left

logical; if TRUE return the left join, otherwise an inner join; see details. see also left_join

largest

logical; if TRUE, return x features augmented with the fields of y that have the largest overlap with each of the features of x; see https://github.com/r-spatial/sf/issues/578

.predicate

geometry predicate function with the same profile as st_intersects; see details

Details

alternative values for argument join are:

A left join returns all records of the x object with y fields for non-matched records filled with NA values; an inner join returns only records that spatially match.

Value

an object of class sf, joined based on geometry
