Great to see more promotion of R in Africa. We are just starting to build some R tools for African mapping through the Wellcome funded afrimapr project. Will let you know what we have before you go. All the best.

Delighted to support this great initiative, both as a statistician using open-source software, and as a former resident of Mbabane, Joburg & Cape Town.
