# Install gissr

Background

R's spatial data analysis abilities are very well developed. Therefore, R can be used as an effective geographical information system (GIS). A key advantage of R in GIS applications is that the user can dip in-and-out of R's general string, numerical, and visualisation tools and apply them to spatial data.

However, the challenges I have with using R as a GIS are:

To overcome these points, I have written wrappers for many geographical functions which generally begin sp_ to do particular tasks and bundled all the dependencies together as a package. Some of these functions will likely be useful for others.

Utility functions

Raster functions

OpenStreetMap data importers
