Convert a bounding box to a Well Known Text polygon, and a WKT to a bounding box

Convert a bounding box to a Well Known Text polygon, and a WKT to a bounding box

Usage
bbox2wkt(minx = NA, miny = NA, maxx = NA, maxy = NA, bbox = NULL)

wkt2bbox(wkt)

Arguments
minx

Minimum x value, or the most western longitude

miny

Minimum y value, or the most southern latitude

maxx

Maximum x value, or the most eastern longitude

maxy

Maximum y value, or the most northern latitude

bbox

A vector of length 4, with the elements: minx, miny, maxx, maxy

wkt

A Well Known Text object.

Value

bbox2wkt returns an object of class charactere, a Well Known Text string of the form 'POLYGON((minx miny, maxx miny, maxx maxy, minx maxy, minx miny))'

wkt2bbox returns a numeric vector of length 4, like c(minx, miny, maxx, maxy).
