Making Beautiful And Effective Maps In R (MAPR04)

23rd - 24th February 2023

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:

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