Someone told me about a R package with the definition of objects some regions and nations boundaries. I'm trying to find the border of Veneto, an italian region. What's the name of the package? Do you know an alternative way to find that border (I'm not sure that Veneto is included in the package)??
Not sure about the specific boundary that you are after but I believe that you are referring to the "maps" package.
If there is not adequate detail in the maps datasets, there is a supplementary package "mapdata" with a worldHires dataset. From the package description: "This world database comes from a cleaned-up version of the CIA World Data Bank II data and contains approximately 2 million points representing the world coastlines and national boundaries. This makes it suitable for extracting countries, continents, etc. while still retaining lots of detail."
