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, Urbana-Champaign.

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.
