#' @title Geochemical measurements for 960 sites in Colorado.
#' @description These data were collected by the United States Geological Survey (USGS).  Their description is as follows:  In 2006, soil samples were collected at 960 sites (1 site per 280 square kilometers) throughout the state of Colorado. These samples were collected from a depth of 0 to 15 centimeters and, following a near-total multi-acid digestion, were analyzed for a suite of more than 40 major and trace elements. The resulting data set provides a baseline for the natural variation in soil geochemistry for Colorado and forms the basis for detecting changes in soil composition that might result from natural processes or anthropogenic activities. 
#' 
#' Latitude and Longitude determined by hand-held GPS instrument using WGS84 datum.  The longitude and latitude coordinates were converted to UTM coordinates using the following commands from the \code{sp} package:
#' lonlat = co[, c("longitude", "latitude")]; 
#' coordinates(lonlat) <- c("longitude", "latitude")
#' proj4string(lonlat) <- CRS("+proj=longlat +datum=WGS84")  ## for example
#' xy <- spTransform(lonlat, CRS("+proj=utm +zone=13 ellps=WGS84"))
