I´ve just finished a flexdashboard which includes some leaflet maps showing data on migratory bird species distribution and wind farms, beside other layers of interest. I’m trying to host it on github, but I’m facing problems due to the large size of the geoespatial files. So I thougt that perhaps I could keep the large data files in a free repository and read them using some avaliable package.
I used de 'gsheet' package to read part of my data in .xlsx file format and it did work.
install.packages('gsheet') library(gsheet) data <- gsheet2tbl('https://drive.google.com/open?id=1tgvOoEMkHRgNTVuHdlO3DikH0cEGsL0X') View(data)
But I found no way of reading the files in .shp format from the Google Drive.
Anybody with some tips or ideas on how I could solve the problem?
Thanks in advance for any help!
