OpenStreetMap is a new package that accesses raster open street maps from Mapnik, and satellite imagery from Bing.

Some features:

  1. Uses multiple map tiles stitched together to create high quality images.
  2. No files are created or stored on the hard drive.
  3. Tiles are cached, so downloads occur only when necessary.
  4. ggplot 0.9.0 integration
