"The book's tone and technical focus ... suits well its intended audience: advanced or intermediate users of R wanting to improve their spatial analysis skills. ... this book is the authoritative resource on R's spatial capabilities. I heartily recommend ASDAR to all existing R users interested in spatial data and adventurous R beginners with a strong grounding in GIS."
