Percentile

Get coordinates of specified location.

Convenience function for looking up latitude/longitude coordinate information for a given location. Returns data as a special "coords" object, which is specifically designed to interact smoothly with other relevant package functions.

Usage
lookup_coords(address, components = NULL, ...)
Arguments
address

Desired location typically in the form of place name, subregion, e.g., address = "lawrence, KS". Also accepts the name of countries, e.g., address = "usa", address = "brazil" or states, e.g., address = "missouri" or cities, e.g., address = "chicago". In most cases using only address should be sufficient.
