PBSmapping (2.65.40)

Mapping Fisheries Data and Spatial Analysis Tools.


This software has evolved from fisheries research conducted at the Pacific Biological Station (PBS) in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. It extends the R language to include two-dimensional plotting features similar to those commonly available in a Geographic Information System (GIS). Embedded C code speeds algorithms from computational geometry, such as finding polygons that contain specified point events or converting between longitude-latitude and Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates. Additionally, we include C code developed by Alan Murta for the General Polygon Clipper (GPC) library (C) Copyright 1997-2012, Advanced Interfaces Group, University of Manchester. PBSmapping also includes data for a global shoreline and other data sets in the public domain. The R directory '.../library/PBSmapping/doc' offers a complete user's guide PBSmapping-UG.pdf, which should be consulted to use all functions in the package effectively.
