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 http://www.flickr.com/services/api 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.
