99th

Percentile

Set of tools for manipulating geographic data. It includes binary access to 'GSHHG' shoreline files. The package also provides interface wrappers for exchanging spatial objects with packages such as 'PBSmapping', 'spatstat', 'maps', 'RArcInfo', 'Stata tmap', 'WinBUGS', 'Mondrian', and others.

classInt

cran
98th

Percentile

Selected commonly used methods for choosing univariate class intervals for mapping or other graphics purposes.

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.4' library. The 'GDAL' and 'PROJ.4' libraries are external to the package, and, when installing the package from source, must be correctly installed first. Both 'GDAL' raster and 'OGR' vector map data can be imported into R, and 'GDAL' raster data and 'OGR' vector data exported. Use is made of classes defined in the 'sp' package. Windows and Mac Intel OS X binaries (including 'GDAL', 'PROJ.4' and 'Expat') are provided on 'CRAN'.

rgeos

cran
98th

Percentile

Interface to Geometry Engine - Open Source ('GEOS') using the C 'API' for topology operations on geometries. The 'GEOS' library is external to the package, and, when installing the package from source, must be correctly installed first. Windows and Mac Intel OS X binaries are provided on 'CRAN'.

spdep

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".

spgwr

cran
88th

Percentile

Functions for computing geographically weighted regressions are provided, based on work by Chris Brunsdon, Martin Charlton and Stewart Fotheringham.

rgrass7

cran
86th

Percentile

Interpreted interface between 'GRASS' 7 geographical information system and R, based on starting R from within the 'GRASS' 'GIS' environment, or running free-standing R in a temporary 'GRASS' location; the package provides facilities for using all 'GRASS' commands from the R command line. This package may not be used for 'GRASS' 6, for which 'spgrass6' should be used.

spgrass6

cran
77th

Percentile

Interpreted interface between GRASS 6+ geographical information system and R, based on starting R from within the GRASS environment, or running free-standing R in a temporary GRASS location; the package provides facilities for using all GRASS commands from the R command line. This package may not be used for GRASS 7, for which rgrass7 should be used.

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.

foreign

cran
98th

Percentile

Reading and writing data stored by some versions of 'Epi Info', 'Minitab', 'S', 'SAS', 'SPSS', 'Stata', 'Systat', 'Weka', and for reading and writing some 'dBase' files.

raster

cran
98th

Percentile

Reading, writing, manipulating, analyzing and modeling of gridded spatial data. The package implements basic and high-level functions. Processing of very large files is supported.

spData

cran
98th

Percentile

Diverse spatial datasets for demonstrating, benchmarking and teaching spatial data analysis. It includes R data of class sf (defined by the package 'sf'), Spatial ('sp'), and nb ('spdep'). Unlike other spatial data packages such as 'rnaturalearth' and 'maps', it also contains data stored in a range of file formats including GeoJSON, ESRI Shapefile and GeoPackage. Some of the datasets are designed to illustrate specific analysis techniques. cycle_hire() and cycle_hire_osm(), for example, is designed to illustrate point pattern analysis techniques.

sf

cran
98th

Percentile

Support for simple features, a standardized way to encode spatial vector data. Binds to 'GDAL' for reading and writing data, to 'GEOS' for geometrical operations, and to 'PROJ' for projection conversions and datum transformations.

pixmap

cran
95th

Percentile

Functions for import, export, plotting and other manipulations of bitmapped images.

PBSmapping

cran
94th

Percentile

This software has evolved from fisheries research conducted at the Pacific Biological Station (PBS) in 'Nanaimo', British Columbia, Canada. It extends the R language to include two-dimensional plotting features similar to those commonly available in a Geographic Information System (GIS). Embedded C code speeds algorithms from computational geometry, such as finding polygons that contain specified point events or converting between longitude-latitude and Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates. Additionally, we include 'C++' code developed by Angus Johnson for the 'Clipper' library, data for a global shoreline, and other data sets in the public domain. Under the user's R library directory '.libPaths()', specifically in './PBSmapping/doc', a complete user's guide is offered and should be consulted to use package functions effectively.

spatial

cran
93th

Percentile

Functions for kriging and point pattern analysis.

cartogram

cran
93th

Percentile

Construct continuous and non-contiguous area cartograms.

fortunes

cran
91th

Percentile

A collection of fortunes from the R community.

interp

cran
63th

Percentile

Bivariate data interpolation on regular and irregular grids, either linear or using splines are the main part of this package. It is intended to provide FOSS replacement functions for the ACM licensed akima::interp and tripack::tri.mesh functions. Currently the piecewise linear interpolation part of akima::interp (and also akima::interpp) is implemented in interp::interp, this corresponds to the call akima::interp(..., linear=TRUE) which is the default setting and covers most of akima::interp use cases in depending packages. A re-implementation of Akimas spline interpolation (akima::interp(..., linear=FALSE)) is currently under development and will complete this package in a later version. Estimators for partial derivatives are already available, these are a prerequisite for the spline interpolation. The basic part is currently a GPLed triangulation algorithm (sweep hull algorithm by David Sinclair) providing the starting point for the piecewise linear interpolator. As side effect this algorithm is also used to provide replacements for the basic functions of the tripack package which also suffer from the ACM restrictions. All functions are designed to be backward compatible with their akima / tripack counterparts.

vapour

cran
56th

Percentile

Provides low-level access to 'GDAL' functionality for R packages. The aim is to minimize the level of interpretation put on the 'GDAL' facilities, to enable direct use of it for a variety of purposes. 'GDAL' is the 'Geospatial Data Abstraction Library' a translator for raster and vector geospatial data formats that presents a single raster abstract data model and single vector abstract data model to the calling application for all supported formats <http://gdal.org/>. Other available packages 'rgdal' and 'sf' also provide access to the 'GDAL' library, but neither can be used for these lower level tasks, and both do many other tasks.

INLABMA

cran
48th

Percentile

Fit Spatial Econometrics models using Bayesian model averaging on models fitted with INLA. The INLA package can be obtained from <http://www.r-inla.org>.
