I am new to R and still getting to know the environment.
I am doing a project in animal movement. I have x and y locations (plus IDs, dates, hours) in an Excel table, converted into .csv as well. I downloaded the data from LiDAR and another web page for the area the animals were moving around at, so I got .asc and .tiff files. Now I need to combine the x and y locations with either of these files to get an elevation for each x and y (elevation will be one of the environmental covariates).
I tried "elevatr" package/guidance but it's only for US and it only shows how to download it from the internet.
Has anyone any idea how to merge or combine these files and get elevations for each location?
I believe there's a very simple way of doing it but as I said, I'm new to this coding and wandering in the dark most of the time.
