PBSmapping: Mapping Fisheries Data and Spatial Analysis Tools
This software has evolved from fisheries research conducted at the
Pacific Biological Station (PBS) in ‘Nanaimo’, British Columbia, Canada. It
extends the R language to include two-dimensional plotting features similar
to those commonly available in a Geographic Information System (GIS).
Embedded C code speeds algorithms from computational geometry, such as
finding polygons that contain specified point events or converting between
longitude-latitude and Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinates.
Additionally, we include ‘C++’ code developed by Angus Johnson for the ‘Clipper’
library. Also included are data for a global shoreline and other
data sets in the public domain. The R directory ‘.../library/PBSmapping/doc’
offers a complete user's guide, which should be consulted to use package
