This page refers to the usage of R within a GRASS GIS 7 session. (see also R_statistics/spgrass6)

Startup

  • First start a GRASS GIS session. Then, at the GRASS command line start R (for a 'rstudio' session, see below)
In this example we will use the North Carolina sample dataset.

Reset the region settings to the defaults

GRASS 7.0.1svn (nc_spm_08_grass7):~ > g.region -d

Launch R from the GRASS prompt

GRASS 7.0.1svn (nc_spm_08_grass7):~ > R

Load the rgrass7 library:

> library(rgrass7)

Get the GRASS environment (mapset, region, map projection, etc.); you can display the metadata for your location by printing G:

> G <- gmeta()
gisdbase    /home/neteler/grassdata 
location    nc_spm_08_grass7 
mapset      user1 
rows        620 
columns     1630 
north       320000 
south       10000 
west        120000 
east        935000 
nsres       500 
ewres       500 
projection  +proj=lcc +lat_1=36.16666666666666 +lat_2=34.33333333333334
+lat_0=33.75 +lon_0=-79 +x_0=609601.22 +y_0=0 +no_defs +a=6378137
+rf=298.257222101 +towgs84=0.000,0.000,0.000 +to_meter=1 

Listing of existing maps

List available vector maps:

> execGRASS("g.list", parameters = list(type = "vector"))

List selected vector maps (wildcard):

> execGRASS("g.list", parameters = list(type = "vector", pattern = "precip*"))

Save selected vector maps into R vector:

> my_vmaps <- execGRASS("g.list", parameters = list(type = "vector", pattern = "precip*"))
> attributes(my_vmaps)
> attributes(my_vmaps)$resOut

List available raster maps:

> execGRASS("g.list", parameters = list(type = "raster"))

List selected raster maps (wildcard):

> execGRASS("g.list", parameters = list(type = "raster", pattern = "lsat7_2002*"))

Reading in data

Read in two raster maps (North Carolina sample dataset):

> ncdata <- readRAST(c("geology_30m", "elevation"), cat=c(TRUE, FALSE), ignore.stderr=TRUE, plugin=NULL)

The metadata are accessed and available, but are not (yet) used to structure the sp class objects, in this case a SpatialGridDataFrame object filled with data from two North Carolina layers. Here is a plot of the elevation data:

> image(ncdata, attr = 2, col = terrain.colors(20))

Add a title to the plot:

> title("North Carolina elevation")
Ncdata.png

In addition, we can show what is going on inside the objects read into R:

> str(G)

Summarizing data

We can create a table of cell counts:

> table(ncdata$geology_30m)
CZfg_217 CZlg_262 CZig_270 CZbg_405 CZve_583 CZam_720 CZg_766 CZam_862 CZbg_910 Km_921 CZbg_945 CZam_946 CZam_948
70381 19287 66861 24561 2089 467 691 6017 4351 1211 1 398 85

And compare with the equivalent GRASS module:

> execGRASS("r.stats", flags=c("c", "l"), parameters=list(input="geology_30m"), ignore.stderr=TRUE)
217 CZfg 70381
262 CZlg 19287
270 CZig 66861
405 CZbg 24561
583 CZve 2089
720 CZam 467
766 CZg 691
862 CZam 6017
910 CZbg 4351
921 Km 1211
945 CZbg 1
946 CZam 398
948 CZam 85

Create a box plot of geologic types at different elevations:

> boxplot(ncdata$elevation ~ ncdata$geology_30m, medlwd = 1)
Boxplot geo.png

Exporting data back to GRASS

Finally, a SpatialGridDataFrame object is written back to a GRASS raster map:

First prepare some data: (square root of elevation)

> ncdata$sqdem <- sqrt(ncdata$elevation)

Export data from R back into a GRASS raster map:

> writeRAST(ncdata, "sqdemNC", zcol="sqdem", ignore.stderr=TRUE)

Check that it imported into GRASS ok:

> execGRASS("r.info", parameters=list(map="sqdemNC"))
