I am excited to announce the addition of DeducerSpatial to the Deducer plug-in ecosystem. DeducerSpatial is a graphical user interface for the visualization and analysis of spatial data, built on Deducer’s plug-in platform. In a previous post I illustrated how to user DeducerSpatial from the command line to add Open Street Map images to your R plots. In the video below, I provide a quick tour of the GUI.

To try it out for yourself:

  1. Install Deducer (Instructions)
  2. Open JGR
  3. Enter the following into the console: install.packages(“DeducerSpatial”,,”http://cran.r-project.org”)
  4. Once DeducerSpatial is loaded ( library(DeducerSpatial) ), you can type data(states) or data(LA_places) to bring in some data to play around with.
