# Plotting stereonets in R

Is there a package for R to plot Schmidt nets, like it is done in geology?

So far, I only know software like Stereonet. However I think it would make a lot of sense to handle these data in R, to have so much more possibilities in calculations and statistics.

• Schmidt nets are not familiar to me. According to Wikipedia it is a method to construct a Lambert azimuthal equal-area projection. This tutorial on GMT states that the a Lambert azimuthal equal-area projection is also known as equal-area (Schmidt) stereonet. The question R mapproj lambert-azimuthal equal area projection might provide an answer for you. May 31 '16 at 18:01

• The function StereoWeb in the RockFab package might be appropriate. Jun 2 '16 at 21:15
There is also the net function in the RFOC package
