Contributed R Packages

Below is a list of all packages provided by project R interface to GEOS.

Important note for package binaries: R-Forge provides these binaries only for the most recent version of R, but not for older versions. In order to successfully install the packages provided on R-Forge, you have to switch to the most recent version of R or, alternatively, install from the package sources (.tar.gz).



Interface to Geometry Engine - Open Source (GEOS)

  Interface to Geometry Engine - Open Source (GEOS) using the C API for topology operations on geometries. Please note that rgeos will be retired during October 2023, plan transition to sf or terra functions using GEOS, or the geos package, at your earliest convenience (see and earlier blogs for guidance). The GEOS library is external to the package, and, when installing the package from source, must be correctly installed first. Windows and Mac Intel OS X binaries are provided on CRAN. (rgeos >= 0.5-1): Up to and including GEOS 3.7.1, topological operations succeeded with some invalid geometries for which the same operations fail from and including GEOS 3.7.2. The checkValidity= argument defaults and structure have been changed, from default FALSE to integer default 0L for GEOS < 3.7.2 (no check), 1L GEOS >= 3.7.2 (check and warn). A value of 2L is also provided that may be used, assigned globally using set_RGEOS_CheckValidity(2L), or locally using the checkValidity=2L argument, to attempt zero-width buffer repair if invalid geometries are found. The previous default (FALSE, now 0L) is fastest and used for GEOS < 3.7.2, but will not warn users of possible problems before the failure of topological operations that previously succeeded. From GEOS 3.8.0, repair of geometries may also be attempted using gMakeValid(), which may, however, return a collection of geometries of different types.

Build status codes

0 - Current: the package is available for download. The corresponding package passed checks on the Linux and Windows platform without ERRORs.
1 - Scheduled for build: the package has been recognized by the build system and provided in the staging area.
2 - Building: the package has been sent to the build machines. It will be built and checked using the latest patched version of R. Note that it is included in a batch of several packages. Thus, this process will take some time to finish.
3 - Failed to build: the package failed to build or did not pass the checks on the Linux and/or Windows platform. It is not made available since it does not meet the policies.
4 - Conflicts: two or more packages of the same name exist. None of them will be built. Maintainers are asked to negotiate further actions.
5 - Offline: the package is not available. The build system may be offline or the package maintainer did not trigger a rebuild (done e.g., via committing to the package repository).

If your package is not shown on this page or not building, then check the build system status report.
