gdalUtilities: Wrappers for 'GDAL' Utilities Executables
R's 'sf' package ships with self-contained 'GDAL'
executables, including a bare bones interface to several
'GDAL'-related utility programs collectively known as the 'GDAL
utilities'. For each of those utilities, this package provides an
R wrapper whose formal arguments closely mirror those of the
'GDAL' command line interface. The utilities operate on data
stored in files and typically write their output to other
files. Therefore, to process data stored in any of R's more common
spatial formats (i.e. those supported by the 'sp', 'sf', and
'raster' packages), first write them to disk, then process them
with the package's wrapper functions before reading the outputted
results back into R. GDAL function arguments introduced in GDAL
version 3.2.1 or earlier are supported.
