Recent developments in the areas of data standardisation, web-based visualisation and computing, spatial databases, scalability, as well as R developments such as pipe-based workflows and the tidyverse have stimulated to rethink the way we handle spatial data in R. This has for instance resulted in package sf (https://cran.r-project.org/package=sf), a package that has been developed with support from the R consortium.

This talk will illuminate new ways of handling spatial data in R, focussing on handling simple features.
