It is easy to create these Grid in R using SP and now SF package. You can use the st_sf() function to convert sf geometry objects to an sf data frame (st_sf() is essentially the opposite of st_geometry()). Example below is using st_centroid() as a standin for a custom function I want to use that will keep all rows and create a new column of values, each value calculated for each row but only using the grouped rows. sf is designed to be more consistent in syntax, tidy, and feature rich (it does everything rgdal, rgeos, and sp do/did). However, it uses a rather complex data structure, which can make it challenging to use. How does the method work? The moving-window data aggregation (MWDA) method smooths an input raster using a specified function within a moving window of a specified size and shape prior to aggregation.
