New Facebook Group: “R, Maps and Open Data”

June 21, 2016

(This article was first published on R –, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

Today I am happy to announce a new Facebook group: R, Maps and Open Data. If you like this blog, then you should join this group! It’s free to join.

This is my first time creating a Facebook group, and I am viewing it as both an experiment and an outgrowth of this blog. Here are some things I hope to achieve with the group:

  1. Have other people share information
  2. Have a discussion
  3. Publish more frequently
  4. Have other people discuss projects that they’re working on (ask for help, share interesting results, etc.).

If this sounds interesting, then join now!

It’s hard to believe that I started this blog only one year ago. At the time, I didn’t know anyone else who was interested in this niche. Now I realize that there are countless people doing fascinating work at the intersection of these fields. Also, the field is sufficiently interesting, and complex, to warrant a discussion group of its own.

A group is only as strong as its members. I hope that you decide to join and contribute! Click here to join the R, Maps and Open Data group on Facebook!
