GDAL2 for R

NEWS: moving to GDAL 3!

GDAL 3 builds are now available at: The GDAL2 repository will not longer be updated (but you can keep using it).

Stack Details

Changes: RWINLIB GDAL v2.2.3: Added drivers for MYSQL, HDF4, KEALIB, OPENJPEG2000, JASPER

GDAL Windows stack, lasted updated February 2018. Contains:

  • GDAL 2.2.3
  • GEOS 3.6.1
  • PROJ 4.9.3

Recently updated drivers (library only):

  • NETCDF 4.5.0
  • HDF5 1.8.20
  • HDF4 4.2.13
  • KEALIB 1.4.7
  • CURL 7.54.1 (--with-winssl)
  • POSTGRESQL 9.6.3 (--with-openssl)

Due to changes in mingw-w64 we rebuild most dependencies from source using msys2 + rtools. Just source or before running makepkg-mingw.

How to use

To link the stack use the following flags in your package

VERSION = 2.2.3
COMPILED_BY ?= gcc-4.6.3
RWINLIB = ../windows/gdal2-$(VERSION)
TARGET = lib$(subst gcc,,$(COMPILED_BY))$(R_ARCH)

  -I$(RWINLIB)/include/gdal \
  -I$(RWINLIB)/include/geos \

  -lgdal -lsqlite3 -lspatialite -lproj -lgeos_c -lgeos  \
  -ljson-c -lnetcdf -lmariadbclient -lpq -lintl -lwebp -lcurl -lssh2 -lssl -lcrypto \
  -lkea -lhdf5_cpp -lhdf5_hl -lhdf5 -lexpat -lfreexl -lcfitsio \
  -lmfhdf -ldf -lxdr \
  -lopenjp2 -ljasper -lpng16 -ljpeg -ltiff -lgeotiff -lgif -lxml2 -llzma -lszip -lz \
  -lodbc32 -lodbccp32 -liconv -lpsapi -lws2_32 -lcrypt32 -lwldap32 -lsecur32 -lgdi32

See the sf package for a working example.

Build config

Define the following macros to statically link against curl, xml2, openjpeg and jasper:


The PKGBUILD has a fix for autoconf to detect HDF4:

sed -i 's/-lsz /-lszip -lxdr -lm/g'

See attached PKGBUILD for mingw-w64-gdal. Example i686 configure output (same drivers as x64):
