Another Interactive Map for the Cholera Dataset

Following my previous post, François (aka @FrancoisKeck) posted a comment mentionning another package I could use to get an interactive map, the rleafmap package. And the heatmap was here easy to include.

This time, we do not use openstreetmap. The first part is still the same, to get the data,

> require(rleafmap)
> library(sp)
> library(rgdal)
> library(maptools)
> library(KernSmooth)
> setwd("/home/arthur/Documents/")
> deaths <- readShapePoints("Cholera_Deaths")
> df_deaths <- data.frame(deaths@coords)
> coordinates(df_deaths)=~coords.x1+coords.x2
> proj4string(df_deaths)=CRS("+init=epsg:27700") 
> df_deaths = spTransform(df_deaths,CRS("+proj=longlat +datum=WGS84"))
> df=data.frame([email protected])

To get a first visualisation, use

> stamen_bm <- basemap("stamen.toner")
> j_snow <- spLayer(df_deaths, stroke = FALSE)
> writeMap(stamen_bm, j_snow, width = 1000, height = 750, setView = c( mean(df[,1]),mean(df[,2])), setZoom = 14)

and again, using the + and the – in the top left area, we can zoom in, or out. Or we can do it manually,

> writeMap(stamen_bm, j_snow, width = 1000, height = 750, setView = c( mean(df[,1]),mean(df[,2])), setZoom = 16)

To get the heatmap, use

> library(spatstat)
> library(maptools)

> win <- owin(xrange = bbox(df_deaths)[1,] + c(-0.01,0.01), yrange = bbox(df_deaths)[2,] + c(-0.01,0.01))
> df_deaths_ppp <- ppp(coordinates(df_deaths)[,1],  coordinates(df_deaths)[,2], window = win)
> 
> df_deaths_ppp_d <- density.ppp(df_deaths_ppp, 
  sigma = min(bw.ucv(df[,1]),bw.ucv(df[,2])))
 
> df_deaths_d <- as.SpatialGridDataFrame.im(df_deaths_ppp_d)
> df_deaths_d$v[df_deaths_d$v < 10^3] <- NA

> stamen_bm <- basemap("stamen.toner")
> mapquest_bm <- basemap("mapquest.map")
 
> j_snow <- spLayer(df_deaths, stroke = FALSE)
> df_deaths_den <- spLayer(df_deaths_d, layer = "v", cells.alpha = seq(0.1, 0.8, length.out = 12))
> my_ui <- ui(layers = "topright")

> writeMap(stamen_bm, mapquest_bm, j_snow, df_deaths_den, width = 1000, height = 750, interface = my_ui, setView = c( mean(df[,1]),mean(df[,2])), setZoom = 16)

The amazing thing here are the options in the top right corner. For instance, we can remove some layers, e.g. to remove the points

or to change the background

To get an html file, instead of a standard visualisation in RStudio, use

> writeMap(stamen_bm, mapquest_bm, j_snow, df_deaths_den, width = 450, height = 350, interface = my_ui, setView = c( mean(df[,1]),mean(df[,2])), setZoom = 16, directView ="viewer")

which will generate the html table (as well as some additional files actually) above. Awesome, isn’t it?
