Scripting with R¶
Thanks to its official “R Console” plugin, OrbisGIS is able to execute instructions written in R language.
To see how to install this plugin, you are invited to consult this page or just check for “R console” in the Plugins manager.
The “R console” is based on Renjin. Renjin is a JVM-based interpreter for the R language for statistical computing.
Here, the user is able to:
- Write & execute ( ) instructions,
- Execute only selected instructions ( ),
- Load & Save .r files,
- Search & Replace words (with advanced options) ( ),
List tables stored in the default H2GIS database¶
In this example, we are using R to list available tables imported in OrbisGIS (assuming you are in H2GIS mode).
The result is displayed in the Output Console:
 "COMMUNE" "SPATIAL_REF_SYS" "TRONCON_HYDROGRAPHIQUE"  "TRONCON_ROUTE" "ZONE_OCCUPATION_SOL"
