First, we load the RgoogleMaps package. Then we determine the latitude and longitude of the location for which we want a map. Next, we use the GetMap function to acquire and store the map in an R variable called shu.map. The zoom option controls the zoom level of the returned map. The zoom=1 option gives the whole world, and zoom=17 covers a square area approximately a quarter of a mile on each side. Finally, we plot the map using the PlotOnStaticMap function.
