Integrating R with QGIS

Establishes an interface between R and 'QGIS', i.e. it allows the user to access 'QGIS' functionalities from the R console. It achieves this by using the 'QGIS' Python API via the command line. Hence, RQGIS extends R's statistical power by the incredible vast geo-functionality of 'QGIS' (including also 'GDAL', 'SAGA'- and 'GRASS'-GIS among other third-party providers). This in turn creates a powerful environment for advanced and innovative (geo-)statistical geocomputing. 'QGIS' is licensed under GPL version 2 or greater and is available from <>.
