Render mesh3d objects with rayshader and rayrender

People like to show 3D images in their presentations because it usually impresses the audience. Does it really ? I do not care ! I am just looking for an opportunity to play with some 3D images… This blog post is a detailed version of some 3D images shown during my presentation “Everything but maps …

Play with spatial tools on 3D cells images

Let’s play with mapping tools on non-maps data ! {rayshader} is nice on raster maps, but what about using it on segmentized plant cell? […] I wanted to find a good reason to play with Tyler Morgan-Wall packages for 3D visualisation of raster data: {rayshader} and {rayfocus}. Using cell …

Spatial interpolation on Earth as a 3D sphere

Earth map is usually presented flat. Geographical coordinates usually go from -180° to +180°. Spatial interpolations using coordinates may be tricky as -180° is equal to +180°. Here I propose a way to realize spatial interpolations on Earth as a sphere and then map the outputs in 3D using rgl. The …

SDMSelect: Cross-validation model selection and species distribution mapping

This library has originally been created for covariates selection to predict species distribution (biomass, density or presence/absence). Its final aim is thus to produce maps of predicted distributions (Look at vignette SDM_Selection). However, the core of the library is a N-times k-fold …
