Rise & Shiny – Interactive Maps (Leaflet)

December 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm UTC+0

December Rise & Shiny will cover topics in Interactive Maps and how to use the Leaflet package/framework in Shiny apps. We’re going to try a slightly different format this month: less “lecture” tutorial, and more “choose your own adventure” tutorial. Our goal will be to publish tutorial material on Friday night, before the workshop, so that you can get a sense for what part or sections you might like to try working through on Saturday morning.

Topics of Interest:
– The leaflet package
– R packages for extending leaflet
– GeoJSON (what is it / how to create it)
– Alternatives to leaflet
– Github and shinyapps.io
– Coffee and Muffins!

Thanks as always to our sponsor, B23 – platform.b23.io
