Docker-based Geospatial toolkit for R, built on versioned Rocker images.
This image extends the
rocker-versioned stack with geospatial-related tools, particularly those that can be difficult or slow to add on-the-fly. As such, this image includes RStudio, the tidyverse packages, and
verse libraries (notably LaTeX and JAVA environments). Like the rest of the
rocker-versioned stack, tags for specific recent versions, including the
devel tags, are also provided. Versions older than the most recent will install R packages from an MRAN snapshot, and may not provide all the same packages as seen on the most recent versions.
The packages included in this image are not meant to provide a kitchen-sink of all geo-spatially related R packages, see the Spatial Task View and SpatioTemporal Task View on CRAN. This image seeks to provide a more opinionated collection of packages, prioritizing those packages that can be slow or tricky to install due to compiled code and external dependencies, and with an emphasis on more general-purpose libraries and classes.
Please note that many additional geospatial (and other) packages are pulled in as dependencies of this list and thus can also be found on the image. Feel free to request any additional packages you would like to see added by filing an issue.
