Spatializing Data with R
While WYSIWYG software packages like ArcGIS and QGIS remain a standard in cartographic representations, open source, scripting solutions have always had a strong cadre of support, especially for advanced spatial research initiatives. With a development history that harks back to the late 1990s, R has been championed as the free and open source programming tool for statisticians the world over. With its growth and foray into data viz, more and more researchers are adopting R as a solution for their spatial needs, due to its scripting capability, and strong statistical integration.
