I have created 2 polygons in QGIS. Using them in R, polygons become automatically SpatialPolygonsDataFrame (SPDF). I would like to merge them into single SPDF (as is super easy in ArcGis using Tool Merge). I am sure that there should be simple way how to complete that in R, but I can't find how. the merge function seems to merge only data.frames, aggregate function dissolve multiple polygons into one shp, gIntersect (by typing join function) returns logical value, not at all the SPDF.
data are available here: http://ulozto.cz/xpoo5jfL/ab-zip
library(sp) library(raster) library(rgeos) library(spatstat) library(rgdal) library(maptools) setwd("C:/...") a<-readOGR(dsn=getwd(), layer="pol.a") b<- readOGR(dsn=getwd(), layer="pol.b") ab<-merge(a, b) # what tool if not "merge" to use??
