I'm currently building a dataframe (DF) using R and I'm wanting to add habitat type as a variable. Within DF I have grid reference points as variables.

I've imported a shapefile containing habitat data using rgdal::readOGR.

I'm able to plot the shapefile using the base plot function but I've been unable to add the points from DF and unable to find information anywhere on how to then extract which habitat those points fall into.
