ASDAR book Review

I was recently invited to write a book review for Applied Spatial Analysis and Policy (ASAP). The book, I conclude, “is the authoritative resource on R’s spatial capabilities” and should be of interest to many R users. Below is a preprint of the full review, now published on ASAP’s website. As a geographer and heavy R user,...

Spatial Data Visualization with R

I’ve been fooling around with spatial data lately. As it turns out, there are some great R packages for visualizing this kind of data. Below is a set of charts I put together.
