I have a list of raster bricks that have a date value in the z slot. I am trying to perform weekly averages across this list. For example, if my list had one brick for each day of a single week, I would like a single brick returned with the mean values for each layer. Each brick has four layers.

Here's what the first brick in the list looks like:


class       : RasterBrick 
dimensions  : 55, 77, 4235, 4  (nrow, ncol, ncell, nlayers)
resolution  : 0.0118, 0.00833  (x, y)
extent      : -123.2119, -122.3033, 45.23524, 45.69339  (xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax)
coord. ref. : +proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs +towgs84=0,0,0 
data source : in memory
names       : b1, b2, b3, b4 
min values  :             0.02034729,            0.02034729,             0.01428941,            0.01428941 
max values  :              0.3123032,             0.3123032,              0.2410000,             0.2410000 
time        : 2017-09-11, 2017-09-11, 2017-09-11, 2017-09-11 

I used setZ() to add the date to each layer in the brick. This gets automatically converted into the time slot above. The dates of the first brick can be accessed this way:

[1] "2017-09-11" "2017-09-11" "2017-09-11" "2017-09-11"

How can I take this list of raster bricks and convert them into a single rasterBrickTS object?

    I would recommend using the rts package which has functions for raster time series summaries. – Jeffrey Evans Sep 15 '18 at 21:04
