I am pleased to announce that the xtractomatic package is now available from 

xtractomatic is an R package developed to subset and extract satellite and 
other oceanographic related data from a remote server. The program can extract 
data for a moving point in time along a user-supplied set of longitude, 
latitude and time points; in a 3D bounding box; or within a polygon (through 
time). The xtractomatic functions were originally developed for the marine 
biology tagging community, to match up environmental data available from 
satellites (sea-surface temperature, sea-surface chlorophyll, sea-surface 
height, sea-surface salinity, vector winds) to track data from various tagged 
animals or shiptracks (xtracto). The package has since been extended to include 
the routines that extract data a 3D bounding box (xtracto_3D) or within a 
polygon (xtractogon). The xtractomatic package accesses data that are served 
through the ERDDAP  server at the NOAA/SWFSC Environmental Research Division in 
Santa Cruz, California. The ERDDAP server can also be directly accessed at !
 http://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap. ERDDAP is a simple to use yet powerful 
web data service developed by Bob Simons.
