gdalUtilities: Wrappers for 'GDAL' Utilities Executables

R's 'sf' package ships with self-contained 'GDAL' executables, including a bare bones interface to several of the 'GDAL'-related utility programs collectively known as the 'GDAL' utilities. For each of those utilities, this package provides an R wrapper whose formal arguments closely mirror those of the 'GDAL' command line interface. All of the utilities operate on data stored in files and typically write their output to other files. As a result, processing data stored in any of R's more common spatial formats (i.e. those supported by the 'sp', 'sf', and 'raster' packages) will require first writing to disk, then processing with the package's wrapper functions before reading back into R.
