Generates sets of ecogeographic information layers adjusted to the needs of users (different from the boundaries at the country level or of some regions)
This tool allows any other CAPFITOGEN3 tool to work under a spatial framework adjusted to the needs of users, who usually must work with sets of ecogeographic information cropped on standard contours such as the boundaries of countries, subcontinents, or continents. With the help of rLayer, the user can crop the complete set of 170 variables in three ways: 1. By the distribution of their occurrences (presence or collection sites data recorded in a passport table), creating an area in the shape of a rectangle using the maximum and minimum latitude and longitude values of the distribution/occurrences. 2. By the distribution of their occurrences, creating templates from the projection of circular areas of influence around such occurrences. 3. Using a vector map or shapefile that defines a contour by which rLayer crops the layers.
