Are there any maps of Russia?

Sweet indeed :o) thank you for a really useful post

And, Hadley has good mapping support in ggplot2. See http://sites.google.com/site/acommarketinganalytics/

Thanks for the pointer to this data, David. It's going to save me a ton of time in the future! It's just unfortunate that their licenses are rather restrictive (no commercial use).

It's nice to have maps with administrative boundaries for non-US countries. Thanks for this!


i am trying to handle my country map (italy) but I didn't found any information about "internal" vars like example's language.

Hints? Tools? functions? Let's me know, please.

@Daniele: you have to add those variables (for example, with a vector as above), they're not 'internal' :-)

You can find useful data for Italy (for example about unemployement) on www.istat.it

@Daniele: I have written a post about it, maybe you'll find it useful :-) http://bit.ly/3tz6AU

Do you know how to get a map of Venezuela by states?

Informative geographical map information on how to create a USA map from The R Project for Statistical Computing. Thanks.

Thanks sharing ..

Dear David,

I am trying to create a map with central asian countries(Kazakhstan, Uzbekstan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenstan, and Tajikstan) in the same graphic. Since I am new with R, I can't seem to find a better solution to it. Any ideas?

What's the file format if you have your own map data that you'd like the maps routines to read in?

is GADM down? not working form me today!

Used this package to make a great visualization for a project idea. Good stuff!
