Utilities to Handle WKT Spatial Data
Utilities to generate bounding boxes from 'WKT' (Well-Known Text) objects and R data types, validate
'WKT' objects and convert object types from the 'sp' package into 'WKT' representations.
WKT utilities in R
wicket is a little package to make handling Well-Known Text (WKT) data easier in R, letting you easily:
- Validate WKT data;
- Generate WKT bounding boxes from R data types, and;
spobjects (particularly SpatialPolygons and SpatialPolygonDataFrames) into WKT.
The package is mostly built out of C++, and as such can perform all of these operations extremely fast, to the tune of 100,000 sp-to-WKT conversions in just over a second. For more information, see the introductory vignette.
