[R-sig-Geo] Rpy with ArcMap or Spatial Data

there is an ArcGIS toolbox written by Mark Janikas from ESRI that links 
ArcGIS/ArcMap/ArcCatalog with R through Python. This is more like a 
proof-of-principle, it allows to access a point clustering method from R 
from within ArcGIS. Don't ask me for the details, but at least one of 
the two alternative approaches used is based on RPy.


On the other hand, the RPyGeo package for R uses Python (but not RPy!) 
to call ArcGIS tools from within R. Sort of a basic ArcGIS front-end in 
R, but it suffers from the long latency time of ArcGIS.
