VicmapR: Access Victorian Spatial Data Through Web File Services (WFS)

Easily interfaces R to spatial datasets available through the Victorian Government's WFS (Web Feature Service): <>, which allows users to read in 'sf' data from these sources. VicmapR uses the lazy querying approach and code developed by Teucher et al. (2021) for the 'bcdata' R package <doi:10.21105/joss.02927>.
