placement: Tools for Accessing the Google Maps API
Version 0.1.1

The main functions in this package are drive_time (used for calculating distances between physical addresses or coordinates) and geocode_url (used for estimating the lat/long coordinates of a physical address). Optionally, it generates the cryptographic signatures necessary for making API calls with a Google for Work/Premium account within the geocoding process. These accounts have larger quota limits than the "standard_api" and, thus, this package may be useful for individuals seeking to submit large batch jobs within R to the Google Maps API. Placement also provides methods for accessing the standard API using a (free) Google API key (see: ).
