For our “Programming & Statistics for Remote Sensing and GIS” course we have developed an R package to efficiently merge (geo)dataframes, identify, and move “spatial outliers” in geodata, create geographic plots, bubbleplots, and the animation between these plots.
We would be happy if you try it out and perhaps find it useful. Also, feel free to send us feedback or create a github issue if something is not working for you. Thanks! 🙂
