Spatial Data visualization with R

November 27, 2012

(This article was first published on Omnia sunt Communia! » R-english, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I have published the first version of the code and main figures of the “Spatial Data” chapter of the forthcoming book “Displaying time series, spatial and space-time data with R“.

In this chapter I have included a collection of different techniques. For example, you will find a proportional symbol map with tooltips (click on this image to open the map with tooltips)

or a reference map combining data from OpenStreetMap and hill shading.
