you could get some inspiration from the pages Roger compiled: follow
R home page -> related links -> R spatial projects.
There's a number of packages that link R to GIS, and there are a whole
bunch of packages either dealing with point patterns or with geostatistical
data. One thing we're less active in is image analysis, or did I miss

not sure if this is interesting, as only partially R based:
Here at ITC-irst we are doing multitemporal satellite image analysis
for epidemiology using GRASS and R (and PostgreSQL). Basically
time series of land surface temperatures from MODIS (Terra and Aqua),
which gives us 4 maps per day (!). The amount of data to process is
in the multi-GB range.
So, yes, it works well with a high degree of automation.
But it is not a R package of course.
