[R-sig-Geo] problem with gridded

Hi Agnieszka,

This question is not easy to answer because unfortunately you gave
very few details. I assume you want to use the function gridded() on
your dataset alu.

First thing you have to do is to make your dataset a Spatial object.
This is done using the coordinates() function:

coordinates(alu) <- ~x+y # Again, I'm just guessing x and y are the
spatial coordinates

The class of alu should be "SpatialDataFrame"

If your data set is on a *regular* grid, you may want to use the
gridded() function to make alu a Grid:

gridded(alu) <- TRUE

At this point, you may have the following error:
suggested tolerance minimum: 0.142857142857143
Error in points2grid(points, tolerance, round, fuzz.tol) :
  dimension 1 : coordinate intervals are not constant

This means your data set is not regularly gridded. You may want to use
the points2grid function, which has a tolerance parameter.
If your dataset is not gridded, and you need to generate a prediction
grid (eg for kriging), I advise you to use the spsample function (see

hope this helps,
