My blog idea was to create a tutorial about my experience using some packages in R to write point and boundary data into a KML file. This file can then be viewed and further modified in Google Earth.
I used a combination of the tutorials found here in order to achieve the result.
Introduction to visualising spatial data in R (http://cran.r-project.org/doc/contrib/intro-spatial-rl.pdf)
plotKML package (http://gsif.isric.org/doku.php?id=wiki:tutorial_plotkml)
My hope is to have this ready by sometime in the new year for editing. Does anyone else have experience using these packages / tutorials?
