About: Heard about using R, or maybe already use R to do spatial data analysis? This workshop adds one more tool to your box; visual data exploration and real time map based interaction with spatial data in R.
We’ll be showing you how to use mapview and leaflet to plot maps in R that allow you to pan, zoom, and click on features, while using background maps from internet sources for up to date context. This is great for data exploration and sharing geographic data with colleagues before you get to making static maps.
