## Mapping academic collaborations in Evolutionary Biology

Mapping academic collaborations in Evolutionary Biology This post is a repubication of a visualisation I did in 2011 for my (now defunct) datajujitsu.co.uk blog. It was a naive first attempt at web-scraping from an academic publishers website. It was done before I was aware of the problems surrounding access to, and text-mining of, online academic content hosted by...

## Mapping the March 2014 California Earthquake with ggmap

April 1, 2014
By

I had no intention to blog this, but @jayjacobs convinced me otherwise. I was curious about the recent (end of March, 2014) California earthquake “storm” and did a quick plot for “fun” and personal use using ggmap/ggplot. I used data from the Southern California Earthquake Center (that I cleaned up a bit and that you

My little series of posts about the new googleVis charts continues with calendar charts. Google's calendar charts are still in beta, but they provide already a nice heat map visualisation of calendar year data. The current development version of google...

## Wright Map Tutorial – Part 3

March 25, 2014
By

In this part of the tutorial, we’ll show how to load ConQuest output to make a CQmodel object and then WrightMaps. We’ll also show how to turn deltas into thresholds. All the example files here are available in the /inst/extdata folder of the github. If you download the latest version of the package, they should be in a folder...

## Experimenting With R – Point to Point Mapping With Great Circles

March 24, 2014
By

I’ve started doodling again… This time, around maps, looking for recipes that make life easier plotting lines to connect points on maps. The most attractive maps seem to use great circles to connect one point with another, these providing the shortest path between two points when you consider the Earth as a sphere. Here’s one

## Accessing global weather model data using the rNOMADS package in R

March 23, 2014
By

The rNOMADS package interfaces with the NOAA Operational Model Archive and Distribution System to provide access to 55 operational (i.e. real time and prediction) models describing the state of the ocean and the atmosphere. rNOMADS has been used to get wind and wave data for a real time sailing game, to quantify solar energy available

## Updates on Interactive rCrimemap, rBlocks … and the Packt offer!

March 21, 2014
By

Testing rCrimemap as a Self-Contained Web Page I've been learning more about rMaps and rCharts 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...

## Aggregating spatial points by clusters

March 21, 2014
By

With ubiquitous collection devices (e.g. smartphones), having too much data may become an increasingly common problem for spatial analysts, even with increasingly powerful computers. This is ironic, because a few short decades ago, too little data was a primary constraint. This tutorial builds on the 'Attribute joins' section of the Creating maps in R tutorial to demonstrate how clusters can be...

## GSoC Proposal 2014: package bdvis: Biodiversity Data Visualizations

March 17, 2014
By

I am applying for Google Summer of Code 2014 again with “Biodiversity Data Visualizations using R” proposal. We are proposing to take package bdvis to next level by adding more functions and making it available through CRAN. I am posting this idea to get feedback and suggestions from Biodiversity Informatics community.
