Creating Maps in R

October 4 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

In this hands-on workshop participants will create maps of geographic data. Participants will build on their knowledge of R to create static maps with ggplot2. We will then practice adding reference maps, or basemaps, to the static maps using ggmap. Finally, we introduce the leafletR package for creating interactive data maps. The workshop will also use the geocoding functionality of ggmap package as a way to lookup the geographic coordinates of named places, zip codes and street addresses. The focus of this workshop will be on point data stored in data frames.

Knowledge Requirements: R experience equivalent to the D-Lab R Fundamentals workshop series is required to follow along with the tutorial.

Technology Requirements: Bring a laptop with R, RStudio and the following R packages installed: ggplot2, ggmap, leafletR, RColorBrewer, classInt, maps, maptools, scales.
