It is often impractical, inefficient, or impossible to perform an operation on a vector of geometries with all the geometries loaded into memory at the same time. These functions help generalize the pattern of split-apply-combine to one or more handlers recycled along a common length. These functions are designed for developers rather than users and should be considered experimental.
wk_chunk_strategy_single() wk_chunk_strategy_feature(n_chunks = NULL, chunk_size = NULL) wk_chunk_strategy_coordinates(n_chunks = NULL, chunk_size = NULL, reduce = "*")
Exactly one of the number of
chunks or the chunk size. For
the chunk size refers to the number of features; for
wk_chunk_strategy_coordinates() this refers to the number
of coordinates as calculated from multiple handleables
wk_chunk_strategy_coordinates() this refers to
the function used with
Reduce() to combine coordinate counts
from more than one handleable.
A function that returns a
data.frame with columns
when called with a
handleable and the feature count.
