Open a .gdb in R without using ArcGIS

Hi GisWorld,

Since GDAL 1.11, a driver to read the ESRI geodatabase (.gdb) is available (http://www.gdal.org/drv_filegdb.html).
It is thus possible to load the database in R:

 library('rgdal')
 myFeatureClass<-readOGR('/path_to_gdb/myGDB.gdb',layer='myFeatureClass')
