Geospatial data input/output, manipulation, and vizualization are tasks that are common to many disciplines. Thus, we’re keenly interested in making great tools in this space. We have an increasing set of spatial tools, each of which we’ll cover sparingly. See the cran and github badges for more information.
We are not trying to replace the current R geospatial libraries - rather, we’re trying to fill in gaps and create smaller tools to make it easy to plug in just the tools you need to your workflow.
