[R-sig-Geo] Problem of vector allocation in GSIF package

You have two options:

1. Run predictions using tiling 

2. Buy more RAM.

I suggest using option 1 since option 2 can propagate to infinity.

PS: I am working on a new package 
(https://github.com/Envirometrix/landmap/) that should give more 
flexibility to users and maybe even incorporate tiling of large objects 
by default.
