The R package
rgrass7 interfacing R and GRASS GIS will be removed
from active availability on the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN)
during October 2023; it will be archived on CRAN.
This is because the successor
rgrass package has been available
since mid-2022, and because the
rgdal package on which
depends for exchanging files between R and GRASS GIS will also be
archived in October 2023, as described in R-spatial evolution
(latest providing links to earlier). The main change between
rgrass is that
terra is used in place of
rgdal for file
transfer between R and GRASS.
rgrass7 functions have been marked as
deprecated for almost a year now, and maintainers of packages using
rgrass7 have been notified. Please also refer to
for more details.
