R bindings to the liblwgeom library
This package provides functions that use
st_transform_proj (transform through proj, omitting GDAL) and
sfc from tiny wkb), as well as the geodetic (spherical/ellipsoidal) geometry functions
st_geod_segmentize. The previously offered
st_make_valid is now a generic in package
lwgeom depends on sf, which has to be installed first. This package uses the liblwgeom library, and compiles a shipped (and modified) version of liblwgeom. It links to the GEOS and PROJ libraries.
To install from source, it should be enough to have installed
sf from source; the resources for this package (PROJ, GEOS) are being reused.
