Installation

tmap is available on CRAN. Installation is straightforward:

install.packages("tmap")

For Linux and macOS users who are new to working with spatial data in R, this may fail since additional (non-R) libraries are required (which are automatically installed for Windows users).

Windows No additional installation required.

Linux (Ubuntu) See https://geocompr.github.io/post/2020/installing-r-spatial-ubuntu/. Please address installation issues in this issue.

macOS See http://www.kyngchaos.com. Please address installation issues in this issue.
