Making beautiful and effective maps in R (MAPR02)

Feb 17-18 2021

TIME ZONE – Central European Summer Time – however all sessions will be recorded and made available allowing attendees from different time zones to follow a day behind with an additional 1/2 days support after the official course finish date (please email for full details or to discuss how we can accommodate you).

Course overview:
The aim of the course is to show you how to use R to make pretty, yet appealing maps using the R programming language. Several R packages related to spatial data processing and visualization will be introduced during the course. The course will teach you how create publication-ready static maps, animated maps, interactive maps, and simple map applications using a mixture of lectures and computer exercises.

By the end of the course participants should:
1) Understand the basic concepts behind the tmap package
2) Be able to create a variety types of static maps, including raster maps, choropleth maps, and 3) point maps
3) Know how to create interactive maps and simple map applications using the shiny package
4) Be able to create facet maps and map animations to represent spatiotemporal phenomenon
5) Know how to utilize specific-purpose mapping packages to create cartograms or grid maps
6) Have the confidence to apply map making skills to their own projects
