Hi Milton

thanks for your help

I want to compute a lot of things.. :)
for instance, I want to look at the large scale (regional, non-local) behavior of slope and aspect, but since aspect is a circular variable, I can't just go around with mean/median/etc, which are the tools I have on GIS, so I was hoping I could find some way to define the moving-window and the apply some function (from a package or user-defined) to the values within the window (like circular statistics).

best regards
