NOTE: Mapzen has shut down. However, the rmapzen package can be used with other PELIAS providers. The specific hosting service can be set up with mz_set_host. For known providers, rmapzen includes pre-configured API set up functions:

  • to set up as a search (includes geocoding, autocomplete, etc) provider
  • mz_set_search_host_nyc_geosearch() to set up GeoSearch from NYC Planning Labs (currently in beta) as a search provider.
  • mz_set_tile_host_nextzen to set up Nextzen as a vector tile provider

If you know of an API that uses PELIAS that is not included here, let me know.

rmapzen is a client for the Mapzen API. For an introduction, detailed examples, and installation instructions, see: The package is available on CRAN, to install:
