I am having several problems in exporting my point shapefile from ArcGIS 10 to R.

I tried to save the shapefile as a CSV, but R reads all in one row; somebody in another question answered to use GDAL: I don't know where to find GDAL and furthermore my R version does not have this package; I tried to save it as a .txt but it says "an error occurred exporting the table".. I am out of ideas, nothing seems to work.

Can anybody give me a little help?


I suggest swapping your search terms to look for tutorials on loading a shapefile into R, rather than exporting a shapefile from ArcGIS into R.

This link should get you started.
