bangladesh: Provides Ready to Use Shapefiles for Geographical Map of Bangladesh

Usually, it is difficult to plot choropleth maps for Bangladesh in 'R'. The 'bangladesh' package provides ready-to-use shapefiles for different administrative regions of Bangladesh (e.g., Division, District, Upazila, and Union). This package helps users to draw thematic maps of administrative regions of Bangladesh easily as it comes with the 'sf' objects for the boundaries. It also provides functions allowing users to efficiently get specific area maps and center coordinates for regions. Users can also search for a specific area and calculate the centroids of those areas.
