comment Get geographical coordinates from these ones
There are literally infinite possibilities - you'll need a lot more information for someone to help. Usually there's a locally assumed map projection in use, but whoever gave you these numbers should have included that detail with them, or at least a clue. You say you have a map? Does it have any more info?

comment In transferring a family cemetery layout to a digital format, I need a software program
For a GIS option consider Manifold.net, qgis is good but no where near as slick for digitizing

comment Which points in projected raster corresponds to certain latitude,longitude location?
Why? Warping is destructive, it sounds like you just need point value extraction - do you really need to remodel this raster?

comment rasterVis plot3D in R: obtain consistent x-y axes with extent() / projection() shown in RasterLayer object
Screenshot? Reproducible example? It is not just an aspect ratio thing is it?

comment Seeking shapefile for Pacific Ring of Fire?
Ha, be brave! Just use a sensible map projection after manually georeferencing this image.

comment Problems to export raster files in R software
Use a different format, this is a terribly limited format. GDAL can deal with non equal x/y and that can be created from R, but I would recommend to just use Geotiff - if you can't get access to rgdal I would ask for help on that.

comment R: Voronoi tesselation from long/lat data?
just give it dummy data voronoi = SpatialPolygonsDataFrame(SP, data=data.frame(x = seq(length(SP)))) or do return(SP) and work with that instead - it's got nothing to do with the coordinate system. If you make a reproducible example someone might fix it.

comment How to colour a SpatialLinesDataFrame with Rainbow
This q is perfectly clear IMO - the default sp plotting is very limited for thematic formatting - you can pass in cols to plot with the "col" argument, but you'll need to map the colour you to each rowin the spdf on your own. But, since the borders of each pixel are collinear you will get a complex pattern of colours based on incremental overlapping borders. Consider ggplot2::fortify(spdf) to go down another alternative for plotting. Make a new question or modify this one with more details about how you want the lines to be formatted.

comment Filtering Small Areas of Shapefiles Using R
I would use rgeos::gArea(mex, byid = TRUE) to get a vectorized area that you can use as an index against the spdf rows. I.e. mex[rgeos::gArea(mex, byid = TRUE) < 1, ]. If you need to decompose those objects first use ?disaggregate.

comment What are some automated techniques for cleaning bad data from a GPS track log?
A lot of work on this in animal tracking, but the fact is it's a quite technical modelling problem, depending on your needs

comment Rotating ~90° using Two-Point Equidistant projection with Proj4
Great answer! You can also use rasterImage with its angle and interpolation arguments, but you need to correct for the rotation centre (bottom left corner).

comment How can I intentionally corrupt the geometry of a shapefile?
See here for discussion postgis.net/docs/using_postgis_dbmanagement.html#OGC_Validity and look at the GDAL autotest suite for concrete examples with Python trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/TestingNotes

comment Create shapefile connecting points “as the crow flies” in R
If the crow flies a fair distance (I.e. a migratory crow) you'd better use Geo methods like gcIntermediate in geosphere

comment Best file format to manipulate raster data with big length and small width
Probably an actual grid but also store coordinates against the index. NetCDF is suited to this kind of general array storage.

We could do at least some of this with R, keen to explore if you want. My username at Gmail iyi.

comment Remove certain polygon from SpatialPolygonDataFrame
Be wary of "AREA" attributes. There's no guarantee that's the actual area, right? You can use rgeos::gArea(x, byid = TRUE) to calculate it, and rgdal::spTransform if you need to change projection for that calculation.

Another option is to use readOGR() with the MSSQLSpatial driver.

comment SpatialPointsDataFrame too slow FOR LOOP
Looks like you are right, did not expect that. Use WKB and wkb::readWKB instead. Text is inefficient.
