While analyzing geospatial data, easy visualization is often needed that allows for quick plotting, and simple, but easy interactivity. Additionally, visualizing geospatial data in projected coordinates is also desirable. The 'quickmapr' package provides a simple method to visualize 'sp', 'sf' (via coercion to 'sp'), and 'raster' objects, allows for basic zooming, panning, identifying,labeling, selecting, and measuring spatial objects. Importantly, it does not require that the data be in geographic coordinates.
