Paper Abstract Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have become powerful tools to integrate, visualise and analyse spatial data obtained from different sources. However, the number of statistical methods implemented in most GIS is not comparable to those available in statistical software. RArcInfo is a package for the R programming language to import data from Arc/Info Version 7.x binary coverages and E00 files, which provide a complete structure to describe spatial data. Once the data are imported into R, several packages are available to perform spatial analysis, access databases to integrate new data and other interesting possibilities. The result is an increase in the spectrum of statistical tools available to process the data.
