transform geometries in stars objects to a new coordinate reference system, without warping

# S3 method for stars
st_transform(x, crs, ...)

# S3 method for stars
st_transform_proj(x, crs, ...)

Arguments

x

object of class stars, with either raster or simple feature geometries

crs

object of class crs with target crs

...

ignored

Details

For simple feature dimensions, st_transform is called, leading to lossless transformation. For gridded spatial data, a curvilinear grid with transformed grid cell (centers) is returned, which is also lossless. To convert this to a regular grid in the new CRS, use st_warp (which is in general lossy).
