I was looking for a road shapefile for Australia today. I ended up going to Geofabrik. Open Street Map has data in
.osm format. But they do not have one in
.shp for Australia.
If possible, I want to convert the
osm files to
shapefiles using R. I have searched around, but I have not found solutions yet. Is there any way to to this? Alternatively, is it possible to read osm files into R and convert the data to data frame so that I can draw figures using
I have achieved the following graphic of NZ using two shapefiles with
ggplot2. Ideally, I want to produce a similar map of Australia.
