\title{ Methods for retrieving the geometry from a composite (geometry + attributes) object }
\usage{ 
geometry(obj) 
geometry(obj) <- value 
}
\arguments{
\item{obj}{in case of assignment, a data.frame, else an object of class Spatial}
\item{value}{object of class Spatial}
}
\description{
geometry retrieves the SpatialXxx object from a SpatialXxxDataFrame object,
with Xxx Lines, Points, Polygons, Grid, or Pixels. geometry<- converts a
data.frame into a Spatial object.
