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 shapefiles; and create interactive maps on the web.
- Required (or equivalent): Intro to R. All attendees are expected to be basically familiar with R, R Studio, and the Tidyverse.
- Strongly recommended: Visualization with ggplot2
NOTE: If you bring your laptop, follow steps below to prepare (although R & RStudio are installed on lab computers).
- Use a cloud version of R, or install R & RStudio in advance (instructions)
- Install the tidyverse, tidycensus, tigris, and sf packages in advance (instructions)
The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent.
