So this seems to be an issue because I've seen several questions concerning errors when merging or mosaicking rasters in r, including mine. Sometimes I have no issues merging rasters and others I get the follwing.
Error in compareRaster(x, extent = FALSE, rowcol = FALSE, orig = TRUE, : different origin
I'm confused because I can go into ArcMap and do the same thing with no issues or I can figure out the differences in tolerance Raster merge attempt, different origin error and set the tolerance accordingly to overcome the error.
So if ArcMap ignores it completely and I can just overcome the error by changing the tolerance what is the purpose of the tolerance at all? Are there any negative effects from increasing the tolerance or can I just put it at the maximum and ignore it altogether?
I couldn't find anything referring directly to what the purpose of the tolerance is and why it is important.
