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 islands.

The suggested 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.

Package version:2.2-1-1
