project_as_ppi {bioRad}R Documentation

Project a scan (scan) or parameter (param) to a plan position indicator (ppi)

Description

Make a plan position indicator (ppi)

Usage

project_as_ppi(
  x,
  grid_size = 500,
  range_max = 50000,
  project = TRUE,
  ylim = NULL,
  xlim = NULL,
  raster = NA,
  k = 4/3,
  re = 6378,
  rp = 6357
)

## S3 method for class 'param'
project_as_ppi(
  x,
  grid_size = 500,
  range_max = 50000,
  project = TRUE,
  ylim = NULL,
  xlim = NULL,
  raster = NA,
  k = 4/3,
  re = 6378,
  rp = 6357
)

## S3 method for class 'scan'
project_as_ppi(
  x,
  grid_size = 500,
  range_max = 50000,
  project = TRUE,
  ylim = NULL,
  xlim = NULL,
  raster = NA,
  k = 4/3,
  re = 6378,
  rp = 6357
)

Arguments

x

An object of class param or scan.

grid_size

Cartesian grid size in m.

range_max

Maximum range in m.

project

Whether to vertically project onto earth's surface.

ylim

The range of latitudes to include.

xlim

The range of longitudes to include.

raster

(optional) RasterLayer with a CRS. When specified this raster topology is used for the output, and grid_size, range_max, xlim, ylim are ignored.

k

Standard refraction coefficient.

re

Earth equatorial radius in km.

rp

Earth polar radius in km.

Details

The returned PPI is in Azimuthal Equidistant Projection.

Value

An object of class 'ppi'.

Methods (by class)

Examples

# load a polar scan example object:
data(example_scan)
example_scan

# plot the scan:
plot(example_scan)

# make PPIs for all scan parameters in the scan:
ppi <- project_as_ppi(example_scan)

# print summary info for the ppi:
ppi

# plot the ppi:
plot(ppi)

# extract the DBZH scan parameter of the volume to a new
# object 'param':
param <- get_param(example_scan, "VRADH")

# make a ppi for the new 'param' object:
ppi <- project_as_ppi(param)

# print summary info for this ppi:
ppi

# plot the ppi:
plot(ppi)
