NOTE: under active development! We’d love to hear from you on how you would like to use locations services R packages. Please start a discussion and we’ll get back to you there!

arcgis is a meta-package that loads ArcGIS location services packages. As of this writing, it includes the packages {arcgislayers}, and {arcgisutils}.

  • arcgislayers is the workhorse package that interacts with feature services and image servers
  • arcgisutils is a developer oriented package that is used for crafting requests to be used by other location service packages such as arcgislayers

Please refer to arcgislayers package site for examples.


You can install the development version of arcgis from GitHub with:

# install.packages("remotes")
