Draw Treemaps in ‘ggplot2’ (treemapify)
Provides ‘ggplot2’ geoms for drawing treemaps.

One-Sided Dynamic Principal Components (odpc)
Functions to compute the one-sided dynamic principal components (‘odpc’) introduced in Smucler, Peña and Yohai (2017) <arXiv:1708.04705>. ‘odpc’ is a novel dimension reduction technique for multivariate time series, that is useful for forecasting. These dynamic principal components are defined as the linear combinations of the present and past values of the series that minimize the reconstruction mean squared error.

Constrained Spatiotemporal Mixed Models for Exposure Estimation (sptemExp)
The approach of constrained spatiotemporal mixed models is to make reliable estimation of air pollutant concentrations at high spatiotemporal resolution (Li, L., Lurmann, F., Habre, R., Urman, R., Rappaport, E., Ritz, B., Chen, J., Gilliland, F., Wu, J., (2017) <doi:10.1021/acs.est.7b01864>). This package is an extensive tool for this modeling approach with support of block Kriging (Goovaerts, P. (1997) <http://…/229148123.pdf> ) and uses the PM2.5 modeling as examples. It provides the following functionality: (1) Extraction of covariates from the satellite images such as GeoTiff and NC4 raster; (2) Generation of temporal basis functions to simulate the seasonal trends in the study regions; (3) Generation of the regional monthly or yearly means of air pollutant concentration; (4) Generation of Thiessen polygons and spatial effect modeling; (5) Ensemble modeling for spatiotemporal mixed models, supporting multi-core parallel computing; (6) Integrated predictions with or without weights of the model’s performance, supporting multi-core parallel computing; (7) Constrained optimization to interpolate the missing values; (8) Generation of the grid surfaces of air pollutant concentration estimates at high resolution; (9) Block Kriging for regional mean estimation at multiple scales.

Shiny/R Wrapper for ‘clipboard.js’ (rclipboard)
Leverages the functionality of ‘clipboard.js’, a JavaScript library for HMTL5-based copy to clipboard from web pages (see <https://clipboardjs.com> for more information), and provides a reactive copy-to-clipboard UI button component, called ‘rclipButton’, for ‘shiny’ R applications.

Objects and Methods for Multi-Companion Matrices (mcompanion)
Provides a class for multi-companion matrices with methods for arithmetic and factorization. A method for generation of multi-companion matrices with prespecified spectral properties is provided, as well as some utilities for periodically correlated and multivariate time series models. See Boshnakov (2002) <doi:10.1016/j.laa.2007.02.010> and Boshnakov & Iqelan (2009) <doi:10.1111/j.1467-9892.2009.00617.x>.
