  • Revolutions: How to combine Google maps and data in R – Every good artist needs a canvas, and when it comes to displaying geographic data placing those data in context — on a map — makes all the difference. A new package for R from Markus Loecher, RgoogleMaps, allows you to download a street or satellite map from Google simply by specifying the bounding latitude/longitude coordinates. (You need to sign up for a free Google API key first, though.) You can then overlay data from objects in R, using tools provided to convert to the map-based coordinate system. Here’s an example from the package vignette overlaying the locations of faults (provided as data in the geomapdata package) on a satellite map:
