The sf package provides a new standard in how to wrangle geometries in R. There are several interfaces into and out of the package, but most interestingly - you can use the package with the %>% syntax for pipe lining operations.This means you can handle geometries in a almost query-like fashion which was not possible with the sp pacakge. sf represents an attempt to provide a handful of simple structures that ultimately support the bulk of typical geometry. This talk will demonstrate some fun boiler-plate code that will showcase the operations and flexibility of sf. A light introduction to geometric principles will also be provided.
