Interactive viewing of spatial data in R
mapview provides functions to very quickly and conveniently create interactive visualisations of spatial data. It was created to fill the gap of quick (not presentation grade) interactive plotting to examine and visually investigate both aspects of spatial data, the geometries and their attributes.
The main user relevant functions are:
mapview- view (multiple) spatial objects on a set of background maps
viewExtent- view extent / bounding box of spatial objects
viewRGB- view RGB true- or false-color images of raster objects
mapshot- easily save maps (including leaflet maps) as
png(or other image formats)
Functions that have been deprecated/deleted recently:

::addGL*functions instead - currently not on CRAN!
Objects of the following spatial classes are supported:
- raster (Layer, Stack, Brick and SpatialPixels* / SpatialGridDataFrame)
- sp (Points, Polygons, Lines and their DataFrame version)
For CRAN release version of mapview use

The most basic call
will produce a web map visualisation of the breweries data with the following components:
