Mapping with R

R has become a popular and reproducible option for supporting spatial and statistical analysis. This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how to plot x/y coordinates; how to generate thematic chloropleths with US Census and other federal data; import, view and produce shapefiles; and create leaflet maps for viewing on the web.


PrerequisiteIntro to R. All attendees are expected to be basically familiar with R, R Studio, and the Tidyverse.  For your convenience you can watch a previous recording of Intro to R and work through the practice datasets on your own.

The workshop rely on the tidy data approach supported by the tidyverse libraries.
