The Rflickr Package

Last Release: 0.2-1 (16 May 2011)

This package provides an R interface to the Flickr Web service functionaliy. There are 113 functions available that can be invoked from within R to get information about the contents and activity at Flickr. Information on these operations is available at along with links to details about setting up an API key.

This is an example of accessing a REST Web service from within R via the RCurl package. Other Web services are also amenable to this sort of access. And numerous others can be accessed via a SOAP interface using the SSOAP package for R.
