r-cran-mapdata Documentation


GNU R support for producing geographic maps (supplemental data)
This package provides facilities for easily producing high-resolution
maps based on data sets in the GNU R statistical computing
environment. It includes high-resolution map data for the entire
world, along with maps of China (including provincial boundaries) and
a higher-resolution map of New Zealand and a number of nearby Pacific
The suggested, non-free r-cran-mapproj package adds facilities for
calculating geographic projections, which are used by mapmakers to
compensate for the inaccuracies inherent in projecting a spheroid's
surface onto a two-dimensional plane.
