tiler 0.2.0 CRAN release: Create map tiles from R

(This article was first published on R on Matthew Leonawicz | Blog, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

The tiler package provides a map tile-generator function for creating map tile sets for use with packages such as leaflet.
In addition to generating map tiles based on a common raster layer source, it also handles the non-geographic edge case, producing map tiles from arbitrary images. These map tiles, which have a “simple CRS”, a non-geographic simple Cartesian coordinate reference system, can also be used with leaflet when applying the simple CRS option.
