\title{Class "SpatialPixelsDataFrame" ~~~ }
\description{  Class for spatial attributes that have spatial locations
on a regular grid. }
\section{Objects from the Class}{
Objects can be created by calls of the form \code{as(x,
"SpatialPixelsDataFrame")}, where \code{x} is of class
\link{SpatialPointsDataFrame-class}, or by importing through rgdal.  
Ordered full grids are stored instead or unordered non-NA cells; 
}

\section{Slots}{
  \describe{
    \item{\code{bbox}:}{Object of class \code{"matrix"}; bounding box }
    \item{\code{proj4string}:}{Object of class \code{"CRS"}; projection }
    \item{\code{coords}:}{see \link{SpatialPoints}; points slot }
	\item{\code{coords.nrs}}{see \link{SpatialPointsDataFrame}}
    \item{\code{grid}:}{see \link{GridTopology-class}; grid parameters }
    \item{\code{grid.index}:}{integer; index of points in the list to points
	in the full (ordered) grid. x cycles fastest; all coordinates increase
	from low to hight except y, which decreases from high to low }
    \item{\code{data}:}{Object of class data.frame, containing the attribute data }
  }
}
\section{Extends}{
Class \code{"SpatialPixels"}, directly.
Class \code{"Spatial"}, by class \code{"SpatialPixels"}.
}
\section{Methods}{
  \describe{
    \item{coordinates}{\code{signature(x = "SpatialPixelsDataFrame")}: retrieves coordinates }
    \item{[}{\code{signature(x = "SpatialPixelsDataFrame")}: selects row(s) and/or attribute(s), and returns an
	object of class \code{SpatialPixelsDataFrame}; rows refer here to the pixel
	numbers, not grid lines. For selecting a square block in a grid, coerce to
	a \link{SpatialGridDataFrame-class} first, and use \code{[} on that object}
	\item{as.matrix}{\code{signature(x = "SpatialPixelsDataFrame")}: coerce to matrix }
	\item{rbind}{\code{signature(x = "SpatialPixelsDataFrame")}: rbind-like method }
  }
