Last year I decided to take out the domain I used it to host information about Choroplethr, my suite of R packages for mapping demographic statistics. A year and a half later, I’ve made the first significant change to the site!

The old version of was structured as a series of essays that demonstrated how to use specific parts of each package. After collecting data on how people were interacting with the site, as well as talking to hundreds of Choroplethr users, I decided to update the site.

The new site has 4 sections:

  1. Free Course. The most popular introduction to Choroplethr continues to be Learn to Map Census Data in R, my free course on using Choroplethr.
  2. Packages and Documentation. This section is new: it contains a description of each of the five packages that make up Choroplethr, as well as documentation on each function and object in each package.
  3. Courses. This section describes the two advanced courses I created, and how they can help Choroplethr users. These courses are Mapmaking in R with Choroplethr and Shapefiles for R Programmers
  4. Support. This section provides information on how to get support when using Choroplethr.

I hope that you’ll take a moment to visit the new version of and let me know what you think!
