support for tmap via lwgeom package


Installation of package 'tmap' is failing due to some kind of compilation failure for package 'lwgeom.'

Here's the error message when one tries to install.packages('lwgeom'):

I don't envy y'all the hassle of getting all the GIS backends working on your servers to the point that they can run R's GIS packages...standard linux repositories just don't seem to have it together on GDAL, etc.


g++ error on compiling package raster for tmap install

Seems like this issue might be related. Try installing lwgeom from GitHub until the next version makes it to CRAN.

(specifically, after the above, install.packages("tmap") worked!)
