Geolocalization of IATA Codes

Retrieve geographical information for airports using their IATA or ICAO codes.

Travis build status Coverage status lifecycle

The goal of whereport is to provide a very light function to retrieve geographical information from airport's IATA codes.

whereport? thereport! An official candidate to be the package with the worst pun-in-title.


You can install whereport from github with:

# install.packages("devtools")


whereport goes well with ggmap. You can do something like:

where_iata(c("YVR","CHC")) %>%
  mutate_geocode(Location_served) %>%
  select(Airport_name, lon, lat)

and get a nice logitude langitude thingy ready for some spatial graphviz.

whereport 0.1

  • First public version of whereport. Still experimental, but should be robust enough not to break too easily.
  • For now only one function is offered, where_iata(), that allows for the geolocalization of airports through their IATA codes.
