Innovative features

  • Huge amount of effort's gone into this in an international collaboration: 5000+ commits over the course of nearly 2 years, providing decent R-geo teaching resources to people around the world for free (although a hardback of the book will be made available for sale by CRC Press): https://github.com/Robinlovelace/geocompr/commits/master

Thanks for looking at our submission,

The richness of the content of this book is amazing! Animations, interactive widgets, Shiny apps, ... These are all I have been hoping to see in online books. Thank you all for the two-year effort and the wonderful book! I hope it will inspire more authors!

We know we should be doing more geo stuff at work, so I'm blazing a bit of a trail, and reading your book. I like it.
