RSurvey

This R package is a processing program for spatially distributed data. RSurvey features graphing, data management, query building, and polygon clipping tools. A graphical user interface (GUI) is provided and requires R operate as an SDI application, using multiple top-level windows for the console, graphics, and pager. The set of standards used for coding RSurvey is documented in Google's R Style Guide.

Install

If R is not already installed on your computer, download and install the latest binary distribution from CRAN. Windows users should set R to operate as an SDI application during installation by choosing to customize the start-up options and specifying the SDI interface (not the default).

Open an R session and install RSurvey and its dependent packages from CRAN using the following command:

> install.packages("RSurvey")

In addition to the required packages, RSurvey uses functions in a number of recommended packages. If any of these recommended packages are missing, RSurvey will offer to install them when it first starts up. Note that the license for the recommended package tripack explicitly forbids commercial use.

Support for displaying table data is provided by tktable, a spreadsheet-like Tcl/Tk widget (typically included with the binary distribution of R). The following command will indicate whether tktable is available for use:

> tcltk::tclRequire("Tktable", warn = TRUE)

Run

Load RSurvey in the current R session to activate the main GUI:

> library(RSurvey)

Example data sets are provided in the following directory:

> system.file("extdata", package = "RSurvey")
