A mailing list has been opened, and a collection of web pages assembled,
to provide a joint forum for R spatial projects, where spatial data is
understood mostly as geographical data.

The mailing list is for discussing the development and use of R functions
and packages for handling and analysis of spatial, and particularly
geographical, data. The list also covers mapping and cartographic issues,
and interfaces between R and geographical information systems. It can
be accessed directly at:


or through the R spatial projects web site:


hosted by the Spatial Analysis Laboratory in the Department of
Agricultural and Consumer Economics at the University of Illinois,

I would be very grateful for comments on, and corrections and
contributions to the web pages, in particular from authors and maintainers
of packages that should be described in and linked to the site.
