I've been making good progress in the last few weeks thanks to this
list, along with Roger and Adrians' books and some great geo-packages.
I'm trying to combine some shapefiles...
CA <- readShapePoly('ca.shp')
LA <- readShapePoly('la.shp')
Now I want to combine these two into a bigger object...
I've searched the books and the internet and I've tried a number of
> S1 <- unionSpatialPolygons(CA, LA)
Loading required package: gpclib
General Polygon Clipper Library for R (version 1.4-4)
Type 'class ? gpc.poly' for help
Error in unionSpatialPolygons(CA, LA) : input lengths differ
> S1 <- spRbind(CA, LA)
Error in spRbind(as(obj, "SpatialPolygons"), as(x, "SpatialPolygons")) :
non-unique polygon IDs
Any ideas please?
Thanks in advance!
