Details

Derived fron version 1.4.0 of Natural Earth data 1:10 m data. The different country boundaries in rworldmap are processed from Natural Earth Data as follows : All : ~ rename any non-ASCII country names that cause R trouble ~ rename Curacao which is particularly troublesome ! ~ check polygon geometries using checkPolygonsHoles ~ set projections, e.g. proj4string(countriesCoarse) <- CRS("+proj=longlat +ellps=WGS84 +datum=WGS84 +no_defs") ~ set polygon IDs to country names (from ADMIN field) ~ copy ISO_A3 to ISO3 ~ replace missing ISO3 codes (6 in this version) with ADM0_A3 ~ check for duplicate ISO3 codes (2 in this version) ~ set ISO3 for Gaza to Gaza and 'Ashmore and Cartier Islands' to Ashm ~ replace POP_EST of -99 with NA ~ join on countryRegions data
