 At FOSS4G 2022 community sprint, Nick suggested to add tmap in the ISO as
 a cartographic library.
 So I investigated a bit.

 running `install.packages("tmap")` show that tmap as some dependencies
 like leaflet and stars that does not install.

 I managed to fix the leaflet dependencies issues with `sudo apt install

 For the stars issues, it is more tricky. It does need the lwgeom.
 I managed to install with `sudo apt install r-cran-lwgeom`

 But still go errors:

 ` Error: package ‘sf’ 1.0.6 was found, but >= 1.0.8 is required by

 so it tries to install sf 1.0.8 but it can't install it due to missing
 access to `gdal-config`:

 `configure: error: gdal-config not found or not executable.`

 `ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘sf’

 as suggested in stackoverflow, I tried to install `libgdal-dev` to get
 that command. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12141422/error-gdal-

 It requires 352 MB of additional disk space so I wonder if it worths it.
 Maybe there is some other way to avoid that.

 That might be also a problem with next version
