geonames

cran
89th

Percentile

The web service at <https://www.geonames.org/> provides a number of spatial data queries, including administrative area hierarchies, city locations and some country postal code queries. A (free) username is required and rate limits exist.

sp

cran
99th

Percentile

Classes and methods for spatial data; the classes document where the spatial location information resides, for 2D or 3D data. Utility functions are provided, e.g. for plotting data as maps, spatial selection, as well as methods for retrieving coordinates, for subsetting, print, summary, etc.

raster

cran
98th

Percentile

Reading, writing, manipulating, analyzing and modeling of spatial data. The package implements basic and high-level functions for raster data and for vector data operations such as intersections. See the manual and tutorials on <https://rspatial.org/> to get started.

plotrix

cran
98th

Percentile

Lots of plots, various labeling, axis and color scaling functions.

rgdal

cran
98th

Percentile

Provides bindings to the 'Geospatial' Data Abstraction Library ('GDAL') (>= 1.11.4) and access to projection/transformation operations from the 'PROJ' library. Use is made of classes defined in the 'sp' package. Raster and vector map data can be imported into R, and raster and vector 'sp' objects exported. The 'GDAL' and 'PROJ' libraries are external to the package, and, when installing the package from source, must be correctly installed first; it is important that 'GDAL' < 3 be matched with 'PROJ' < 6. From 'rgdal' 1.5-8, installed with to 'GDAL' >=3, 'PROJ' >=6 and 'sp' >= 1.4, coordinate reference systems use 'WKT2_2019' strings, not 'PROJ' strings. 'Windows' and 'macOS' binaries (including 'GDAL', 'PROJ' and their dependencies) are provided on 'CRAN'.

installr

cran
97th

Percentile

R is great for installing software. Through the 'installr' package you can automate the updating of R (on Windows, using updateR()) and install new software. Software installation is initiated through a GUI (just run installr()), or through functions such as: install.Rtools(), install.pandoc(), install.git(), and many more. The updateR() command performs the following: finding the latest R version, downloading it, running the installer, deleting the installation file, copy and updating old packages to the new R installation.

splancs

cran
95th

Percentile

The Splancs package was written as an enhancement to S-Plus for display and analysis of spatial point pattern data; it has been ported to R and is in "maintenance mode".

fortunes

cran
90th

Percentile

A collection of fortunes from the R community.

stplanr

cran
87th

Percentile

Tools for transport planning with an emphasis on spatial transport data and non-motorized modes. Enables common transport planning tasks including: downloading and cleaning transport datasets; creating geographic "desire lines" from origin-destination (OD) data; route assignment, locally and via interfaces to routing services such as <https://cyclestreets.net/> and calculation of route segment attributes such as bearing. The package implements the 'travel flow aggregration' method described in Morgan and Lovelace (2020) <doi:10.1177/2399808320942779>. Further information on the package's aim and scope can be found in the vignettes and in a paper in the R Journal (Lovelace and Ellison 2018) <doi:10.32614/RJ-2018-053>.

lgcp

cran
77th

Percentile

Spatial and spatio-temporal modelling of point patterns using the log-Gaussian Cox process. Bayesian inference for spatial, spatiotemporal, multivariate and aggregated point processes using Markov chain Monte Carlo. See Benjamin M. Taylor, Tilman M. Davies, Barry S. Rowlingson, Peter J. Diggle (2015) <doi:10.18637/jss.v063.i07>.

DClusterm

cran
74th

Percentile

Model-based methods for the detection of disease clusters using GLMs, GLMMs and zero-inflated models. These methods are described in 'V. G<c3><b3>mez-Rubio et al.' (2019) <doi:10.18637/jss.v090.i14> and 'V. G<c3><b3>mez-Rubio et al.' (2018) <doi:10.1007/978-3-030-01584-8_1>.

stpp

cran
42th

Percentile

Many of the models encountered in applications of point process methods to the study of spatio-temporal phenomena are covered in 'stpp'. This package provides statistical tools for analyzing the global and local second-order properties of spatio-temporal point processes, including estimators of the space-time inhomogeneous K-function and pair correlation function. It also includes tools to get static and dynamic display of spatio-temporal point patterns. See Gabriel et al (2013) <doi:10.18637/jss.v053.i02>.

18th

Percentile

Edge-corrected kernel density estimation and binary kernel regression estimation for multivariate spatial point process data. For details, see Diggle, P.J., Zheng, P. and Durr, P. A. (2005) <doi:10.1111/j.1467-9876.2005.05373.x>.

urbnmapr

github
16th

Percentile

Provides state and county shapefiles in 'sf' and 'tibble' format that is compatible to map with 'ggplot2'. Shapefiles include Alaska and Hawaii, transformed to be displayed as insets within the continental United States. Heavily inspired by and derived in part from the fiftystater package <https://cran.r-project.org/package=fiftystater> by William Murphy.
