Title: Attention RQGIS users
Post by: Pankaj Dey on September 17, 2019, 05:17:49 PM
RQGIS establishes an interface between R and QGIS, i.e., it allows the user to access QGIS functionalities from within R. It achieves this by establishing a tunnel to the Python QGIS API via the reticulate-package. This provides the user with an extensive suite of GIS functions, since QGIS allows you to call native as well as third-party algorithms via its processing framework (see also https://docs.qgis.org/2.14/en/docs/user_manual/processing/index.html). Third-party providers include among others GDAL, GRASS GIS, SAGA GIS, the Orfeo Toolbox, TauDEM and tools for LiDAR data. RQGIS brings you this incredibly powerful geoprocessing environment to the R console.
