The presented R function called eudistance calculates the centroid distance matrix for the different levels of the European Union's (EU) Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) regions in meters and complements it by their code, name, level, and country identifier, as well as their geometric data and centroids. Optionally, this R function displays centroids on a map of Europe to ease the verification of their positions. Please cite as: • Kurbucz, M. T., & Katona, A. I.
