R Links

  1. The ipumsr package helps import census and survey data from around the world integrated across time and space. I've mentioned IPUMS in the blog before. This is certainly among the most important, ambitious and succeeded open data projects in the world

  2. A rather comphrensive comparison between data.table and dplyr syntaxes and funcitonalities ht via Mara Averick. I have to say I a strong preference for data.table because of computational performance. I also generally find the data.table syntax more easily readable than dplyr. There, I said.

  3. Free Book with code: “Spatio-Temporal Statistics with R,” by Christopher K. Wikle, Andrew Zammit-Mangion, and Noel Cressie

  4. brickr: a package to Build 3D LEGO models in R, by Ryan Timpe

  5. trackeR: a package for handling running and cycling data from GPS-enabled tracking devices, by Hannah Frick

  6. A Cheat Sheet on how to use the Reticulate package for interoperability between Python and R

  7. How to create a gif of a spinning globe using R, by James Cheshire

  8. The R package traveltime allows one to retrieve travel-time information from the Traveltime Platform API to create isochrone maps like these below. Great work by Thomas Russo.
