Spatially join a stars and an `sf` object

# S3 method for stars
st_join(
  x,
  y,
  join = st_intersects,
  ...,
  what = "left1",
  as_points = NA,
  warn = TRUE
)

Arguments

x

object of class stars

y

object of class sf, or one that can be coerced into that by st_as_sf

join

the join function, which should return an sgbp object; see details

...

arguments that will be passed on to the join function

what

"left1", "right" or "inner"; see details

as_points

logical; controls whether grid cells in x will be treated as points, or as cell areas; the st_intersects.stars method by default will derive this from x's metadata, or else assume areas.

warn

logical; if TRUE, warn on 1-to-many matches when what is "left1"

Value

If what is "left1", an object of class stars with the (first) value of y at spatial instances of x

Details

When there is more than one match to a single x value, the first matching record from y is taken (and if warn is TRUE a warning is raised). If what is "inner", an object of class sf with all matching records of x and y.
