This package contains convenience functions I have written to help deal with spatial data spread across multiple UTM zones and aggregating raster data to overlapping polygons.

The functions contained in this package serve to make working with
spatial data on large scale easy, as when carrying out cross-national
analyses with spatial data. The function
projectUTM can project
sp objects in latitude, longitude coordinate reference systems,
and can even re-project already-projected objects in other projected
coordinate reference systems.
library(sf) #> Linking to GEOS 3.8.1, GDAL 3.1.4, PROJ 6.3.1 library(RWmisc) nc <- st_read(system.file("shape/nc.shp", package="sf")) projectUTM(nc)
theme_rw function is the minimalist theme I often use for figure
in my work. While it is useful for standard plots, it is an especially
large improvement over the
ggplot2 defaults for maps.
library(ggplot2) ggplot(aes(fill = BIR74), data = nc) + geom_sf() ggplot(aes(fill = BIR74), data = nc) + geom_sf() + theme_rw()
