RgoogleMaps (1.1.6)

Overlays on Google map tiles in R.


This package serves two purposes: (i) Provide a comfortable R interface to query the Google server for static maps, and (ii) Use the map as a background image to overlay plots within R. This requires proper coordinate scaling. NOTE: To do anything but downloading static map tiles, RgoogleMaps needs EITHER rgdal OR ReadImages OR rimage installed ! Such an OR dependency is difficult to express in the Depends field, so I moved those packages to suggested. rgdal is your package if you prefer png file format and ReadImages or rimage if you prefer jpg format. In the latter cases, you will also need the libjpeg library installed.
