DEPRECATION NOTICE

This package, and the companion package arcpyrextra, is now deprecated. Development has transitioned to a new package arcpy, which uses reticulate for the Python-R bridge. arcpy supports all the functionality of arcpyr without the need for the additional wrapper functions that made up the bulk of the arcpyr code base, instead producing an arcpy object that provides a seamless interface arcpy functions and classes. The helper functions da_read, da_update and da_insert have also been ported over from arcpyrextra, and S3 methods were added to arcpy to replace the raster math tools from arcpyrextra.

arcpyr

An R interface for the ArcGIS Python module arcpy. Relies on the virtual Python environment provided by PythonInR to generate function interfaces for arcpy functions and environment settings. arcpy modules and extensions are accessible through an R environment object. See the vignette to get started.

In time, I hope ESRI will develop an R library that allows us to interface with ArcGIS in a similar fashion to Python and arcpy, but arcgisbindings doesn't cut it yet. Until that happens, arcpyr will have to do.

Looking for even more functionality? Check out arcpyrextra, a helper package for doing raster math and working with attribute tables.
