plainview - Interactively Explore (Raster)Images

Travis build status monthly total CRAN status

plainview enables interactive exploration of (raster)images. Images will be rendered on a plain HTML canvas (hence the name of the package). For spatial data this means that rendering is not restricted to a certain projection (e.g. web mercator for leaflet or mapview) but rendering is projection independent. It also means that it is possible to plot large images made up of millions of pixels.


You can install the released version of plainview from CRAN with:



# RasterLayer

# RasterStack
plainview(poppendorf, r = 4, g = 3, b = 2) # true color

plainview(poppendorf, r = 5, g = 4, b = 3) # false color
