Resizing spatial data in R

Here I am after a short break, writing again about R!

In december I worked on a project that required me to work on spatial data. This led me to learn about how R deals with this kind of data and to look around for ways to make my “spatial data experience” less painful. I discovered that R is, as always, full of options.

I’m used to dplyr for exploring data and manipulating it, however when it comes to spatial data, I think that gstat, raster and rasterVis are just some of the useful packages that will make your life a lot easier.
