A new R package was designed by Marius Philipp for the automatized generation of map booklet pdfs based on user defined ggplots.

This package allows to create a map of your study area and a defined number/resolution of smaller maps which can then be used for field work analysis.

The package contains currently two functions, one of which creates a fishnet polygon from the extent of the user input data. The second function uses this fishnet polygon in combination with a user defined ggplot map for the creation of a map booklet, including an overview map, as well as a submap for each tile.
