Recently, I wanted to create a blogpost about simple mapping in R. It required some data (a shapefile), some spatial librairies and the R packages to use thoses libraries. Unfortunatly, the blogdown image that I was using at that time didn’t provided any of that. It was the generic one provided by the Blogdown guide. First reaction was to make a rendered html file. But the build was still cancelled and the html file was not deployed.

I add to resize an OSGeoLive virtual machine because after a couple postgresql workshops with quite big datasets (less than 1 GB each but still), the default size was not enough. So I followed the instructions from here (in French): http://blogf.leunens.fr/2015/1306/agrandir-la-taille-dun-disque-virtualbox.html Please note that,by default, OSGeoLive cames into a vmdk file so you need to convert it to a VDI to increase the volume size. If you already use a VDI file, not need to do that step.
