Tidyverse methods for sf objects. Geometries are sticky, use as.data.frame to let dplyr's own methods drop them. Use these methods without the .sf suffix and after loading the tidyverse package with the generic (or after loading package tidyverse).

Arguments

.data

data object of class sf

...

other arguments

.dots

see corresponding function in package dplyr

add

see corresponding function in dplyr

x

A pair of data frames, data frame extensions (e.g. a tibble), or lazy data frames (e.g. from dbplyr or dtplyr). See Methods, below, for more details.

do_union

logical; in case summary does not create a geometry column, should geometries be created by unioning using st_union, or simply by combining using st_combine? Using st_union resolves internal boundaries, but in case of unioning points, this will likely change the order of the points; see Details.

y

A pair of data frames, data frame extensions (e.g. a tibble), or lazy data frames (e.g. from dbplyr or dtplyr). See Methods, below, for more details.

by

A character vector of variables to join by.

If NULL, the default, *_join() will perform a natural join, using all variables in common across x and y. A message lists the variables so that you can check they're correct; suppress the message by supplying by explicitly.

To join by different variables on x and y, use a named vector. For example, by = c("a" = "b") will match x$a to y$b.

To join by multiple variables, use a vector with length > 1. For example, by = c("a", "b") will match x$a to y$a and x$b to y$b. Use a named vector to match different variables in x and y. For example, by = c("a" = "b", "c" = "d") will match x$a to y$b and x$c to y$d.

To perform a cross-join, generating all combinations of x and y, use by = character().

copy

If x and y are not from the same data source, and copy is TRUE, then y will be copied into the same src as x. This allows you to join tables across srcs, but it is a potentially expensive operation so you must opt into it.

suffix

If there are non-joined duplicate variables in x and y, these suffixes will be added to the output to disambiguate them. Should be a character vector of length 2.

Value

an object of class sf

Details

select keeps the geometry regardless whether it is selected or not; to deselect it, first pipe through as.data.frame to let dplyr's own select drop it.

In case one or more of the arguments (expressions) in the summarise call creates a geometry list-column, the first of these will be the (active) geometry of the returned object. If this is not the case, a geometry column is created, depending on the value of do_union.

In case do_union is FALSE, summarise will simply combine geometries using c.sfg. When polygons sharing a boundary are combined, this leads to geometries that are invalid; see for instance https://github.com/r-spatial/sf/issues/681.

distinct gives distinct records for which all attributes and geometries are distinct; st_equals is used to find out which geometries are distinct.

nest assumes that a simple feature geometry list-column was among the columns that were nested.
