RCzechia-package: RCzechia: Spatial Objects of the Czech Republic

Description Details Administrative regions Natural objects Other objects Utility functions

Description

A selection of spatial objects relevant to the Czech Republic. Due to CRAN package size requirements (5 MB) the objects are stored externally (on Amazon S3) - and therefore could not be implemented as datasets. They are functions returning data frames instead.

Details

To save time (and bandwidth) the downloaded objects are saved locally in 'tempdir' directory when requested, and downloaded at most once per R session; out of respect to CRAN Repository Policy a more permanent caching on user's side is not attempted.

This means that:

For the most frequently used objects - republika, kraje and okresy - a low resolution version is also implemented. The low resolution data sets are stored locally (and working internet connection is not necessary to use them).

All objects are implemented as sf data frames.
