In this 2.5 hour workshop, you will learn how to make elegant interactive maps with minimal code using the R programming language. You'll gain experience with a range of libraries for interactive mapping in R; learn how to customize and share interactive maps; and dynamically link maps and charts using R.

In the first hour of the workshop, you'll build and customize interactive maps using the mapview and Leaflet R packages. You'll learn how to use mapview to rapidly view spatial data in R, and customize mapview's output for presentation-quality mapping. You'll then gain experience with R's powerful interface to the Leaflet mapping library and learn tips and tricks for making interactive maps in R.

The second hour of the workshop will focus on alternative approaches to interactive mapping in R. You'll learn how to create dynamic web interfaces that link maps and charts together and create stunning three-dimensional visualizations with your spatial data straight from R. Along the way, you'll learn about powerful visualization tools like ggiraph and deck.gl.

The last 30 minutes are a Q&A session where live participants asked a variety of additional questions about GIS workflows in R.

What you'll get:

  • Unlimited access to the workshop recording and chat log for future use;
  • A step-by-step annotated tutorial in Quarto format to help you build your knowledge.

About the instructor:

Kyle Walker is an internationally-recognized researcher, consultant, and software developer in the field of spatial data science, and was the 2022 recipient of the Spatial Data Scientist of the Year award from the software company CARTO. He is the author of the book Analyzing US Census Data: Methods, Maps, and Models in R, and has published several popular software packages for spatial data science in R and Python including tidycensus that have been collectively downloaded over 1 million times.

What past workshop participants have said:

"One thing that really stood out was how you shared your own workflow through real-life examples. Seeing the direct application of tidycensus to our day-to-day tasks was a game-changer. It’s safe to say that we’re all feeling a lot more confident about integrating these techniques into our work."

"Your assistance in streamlining some of our existing workflows was a huge bonus. It’s not just the “how-to” that’s valuable, but also the practical insights you provided."

"Your excitement about the whole topic was infectious. It’s not easy to keep a group engaged... but you nailed it. Your enthusiasm made a huge difference."
