This function georeferences an image overlay based on a reference raster, setting the extent and CRS of the image to those of the raster file. To georeference multiple images and merge them into a single file, see [merge_rasters].

georeference_overlay(
  overlay_file,
  reference_raster,
  output_file = tempfile(fileext = ".tif")
)

Arguments

overlay_file

The image overlay to georeference. File format will be detected automatically from file extension; options include `jpeg/jpg`, `png`, and `tif/tiff`.

reference_raster

The raster file to base georeferencing on. The output image will have the same extent and CRS as the reference raster. Accepts both Raster* objects from the `raster` package or a file readable by [raster::raster].

output_file

The path to write the georeferenced image file to. Must be a TIFF.

Value

The file path written to, invisibly.
