Get a SpatExtent of a SpatRaster, SpatVector, or other spatial objects. Or create a SpatExtent from a vector (length=4; order=xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax)

You can set the extent of a SpatRaster, but you cannot set the extent of a SpatVector (see `rescale` for that). See `set.ext` to set the extent in place.

## Usage

``````# S4 method for class 'SpatRaster'
ext(x, cells=NULL)

# S4 method for class 'SpatVector'
ext(x)

# S4 method for class 'numeric'
ext(x, ..., xy=FALSE)

# S4 method for class 'SpatRaster,SpatExtent'
ext(x) <- value

# S4 method for class 'SpatRaster,numeric'
ext(x) <- value``````

## Arguments

x

SpatRaster

cells

positive integer (cell) numbers to subset the extent to area covered by these cells

value

SpatExtent, or numeric vector of length four (xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax)

...

if `x` is a single numeric value, additional numeric values for xmax, ymin, and ymax

xy

logical. Set this to `TRUE` to indicate that coordinates are in (xmin, ymin, xmax, ymax) order, instead of in the terra standard order of (xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax)

## Value

A `SpatExtent` object.

## Examples

``````r <- rast()
e <- ext(r)
as.vector(e)
#> xmin xmax ymin ymax
#> -180  180  -90   90
as.character(e)
#> [1] "ext(-180, 180, -90, 90)"

ext(r) <- c(0, 2.5, 0, 1.5)
r
#> class       : SpatRaster
#> dimensions  : 180, 360, 1  (nrow, ncol, nlyr)
#> resolution  : 0.006944444, 0.008333333  (x, y)
#> extent      : 0, 2.5, 0, 1.5  (xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax)
#> coord. ref. : lon/lat WGS 84 (CRS84) (OGC:CRS84)
er <- ext(r)

round(er)
#> SpatExtent : 0, 3, 0, 2 (xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax)
# go "in"
floor(er)
#> SpatExtent : 0, 3, 0, 2 (xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax)
# go "out"
ceiling(er)
#> SpatExtent : 0, 2, 0, 1 (xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax)

ext(r) <- e
