rwikispeedia

rwikispeedia is a wrapper to the Wikispeddia API. Wikispeedia is "the Open Speed Limit Database". They are "gathering GPS-coordinates of every speed-limit sign on earth".

Their homepage is here. Find them on Wikipeedia here. The short description of their API is here.

This is an example API call: http://www.wikispeedia.org/a/marks_bb2.php?name=all&nelat=35.198676&swlat=35.194676&nelng=-89.56558&swlng=-89.56958

Install using install_github within Hadley's devtools package.

You will also need to install the RCurl, XML, and plyr packages to use rwikispeedia.
