The general advice is to look for CRAN Task Views, and in your case the
Spatial one is probably the most helpful, as it gives a dense overview to
start from. Also look at the R-bloggers aggregation service, for example
blogs by Oscar Perpigñán or James Cheshire, and others. The examples will
vary a lot depending on your application area.
