jmlondon/nPacMaps: an R package for accessing global high-resolution geography

This package contains functions for creating basemap polygons based on data from the Global Self-consistent, Hierarchical, High-resolution Geography (GSHHG) database. Convenience functions are provided for regions specific to the North Pacific. Special care has been taken to address issues that sometimes arise when workin with data that crosses the 180 meridian. A separate download of the GSHHG binary files from is required and should be installed via the included install_gshhg() function. Special thanks to Paul Wessel (SOEST, University of Hawai'i, Honolulu, HI) and Walter H. F. Smith (NOAA Geosciences Lab, National Ocean Service, Silver Spring, MD) for there dedication and maintenance of the GSHHG. Please cite their work if you use this package in a publication.
