{rosm} 0.1.2 release

by on October 20, 2015

After playing a little bit with the OpenStreetMap R package, I decided that I couldn’t quite deal with its idiosyncrasies and that a new package could do things like enter coordinates in the usual (x, y) order and provide support for wrapping around the 180/-180 meridian (so one can make a proper map of Alaska). Like rcanvec, rosm works on the concept of a bounding box, and will happily plot any of 16 defined tile sources or Bing Maps tiles (aerial, hybrid, and maps). Adjusting DPI and changing page sizes (e.g. plotting to your screen then to a page) is a breeze, since plotting is always based on keeping the bounding box visible.

Find the release on CRAN or the GitHub repository.
