Testing rCrimemap as a Self-Contained Web Page
I’ve been learning more about rMaps
since the LondonR meeting
. There are many amazing things you can do with rCharts but it does take time to learn all the tweaks. For example, I just discovered that the rMaps objects (like other rCharts ojects) can be saved as a self-contained webpage.
So here are the links to one of the maps I rendered with rCrimemap – visualising all the England, Wales and N. Ireland crimes in Jan 2014 (not sure why some of the crimes were recorded in Scotland – I’ll need to further investigate this later). Eventually, I hope to build a new Shiny web app for rCrimemap that allows users to change the settings like the original CrimeMap.
Note: I would recommend NOT to try this on smartphones. I will need to figure out how the map can be trimmed and optimised for smartphones later.
Yet Another rBlocks Experiment
Playing with the EBImage package this time, I wrote this script to pixelate a picture and re-colour it with rBlocks (just for fun – not practical at all …) (Gist – rBlocks_test_04_pixelation.R
