# check for raster package and install if missing

## Libraries
## Download, unzip and load the data
tempdir = "temp"
if (!dir.exists(tempdir)) dir.create(tempdir)
download.file(url = 'https://github.com/GeoScripting-WUR/AdvancedRasterAnalysis/archive/gh-pages.zip', destfile = file.path(tempdir, 'data.zip'), method = 'auto')
unzip(file.path(tempdir, 'data.zip'), exdir=tempdir)
# Move from the temp dir to your working directory and clean up
file.rename(file.path(tempdir, 'AdvancedRasterAnalysis-gh-pages', 'data'), 'data')
unlink(file.path(tempdir, 'AdvancedRasterAnalysis-gh-pages'), TRUE)
file.remove(file.path(tempdir, 'data.zip'))

## Load data

## Check out the attributes
## Some basic statistics using cellStats() from the raster package
cellStats(GewataB2, stat=max)
cellStats(GewataB2, stat=mean)
# This is equivalent to:
## What is the maximum value of all three bands?
max(c(maxValue(GewataB2), maxValue(GewataB3), maxValue(GewataB4)))
## summary() is useful function for a quick overview

## Put the 3 bands into a RasterBrick object to summarize together
gewata <- brick(GewataB2, GewataB3, GewataB4)
# 3 histograms in one window (automatic, if a RasterBrick is supplied)
hist(gewata, maxpixels=1000)
