cartography: Cartography Package

Description Note


Create and integrate maps in your R workflow. This package allows various cartographic representations such as proportional symbols, chroropleth, typology, flows or discontinuities maps. It also offers several features enhancing the graphic presentation of maps like cartographic palettes, layout elements (scale, north arrow, title...), labels, legends or access to some cartographic APIs.

A vignette contains commented scripts on how to build various types of maps with cartography:

Main functions :


Up to version 1.4.2 cartography was mainly based on sp and and rgeos for its spatial data management and geoprocessing operations. These dependancies are as much as possible replaced by sf functions since version 2.0.0.
Most functions are kept unchanged except for the addition of an x argument used to take sf objects as inputs. See the NEWS file for details: print(news(package = 'cartography')).
