Collects and reports usage data on R packages
Authors of scientific software packages do not always have good ways of documenting how widely used their work is, and understanding how it is used in conjunction with other packages.
scimapClient allows users of these packages to help:
it sends anonymous usage tracking information about the R packages
you use to a server which allows anyone to see how
widely used and installed these packages are. This is helpful
for demonstrating the usefulness of these packages to
their employers and funding agencies.
This tracking is voluntary and anonymous. To enable tracking
for all future sessions, type
enableScimap() from the
interactive prompt; to disable tracking in this and future
disableScimap(). If tracking is disabled, this
package will do nothing.
