Uses a cross section retrieval web services to retrieve elevation along a path.

get_elev_along_path(points, num_pts, res = 1, status = TRUE)

Arguments

points

sf data.frame containing a point column.

num_pts

numeric number of points to retrieve along the cross section.

res

integer resolution of 3D Elevation Program data to request. Must be on of: 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, 60.

status

logical

Value

sf data.frame containing points retrieved. Names include "id", "distance_m", "elevation_m", "spatial_ref", "geometry", and ".group". .group tracks which input point each set of output points belongs to.

Examples
