Come learn how to turn your data into beautiful webmaps using R and Leaflet, one of the most popular libraries for creating web maps. We’ll cover how to build the entire workflow from raw data to interactive map all within R, so your analysis and mapping are entirely reproducible. We’ll also learn how to save this data as an HTML file so you can display your map on any website.

An intro to the basics that instructors often assume you know, but that you probably never had good instruction on! After this course, you should be able to more easily start learning to program (e.g., in R or python), follow instructions and documentation online (e.g. StackExchange), and communicate better with your collaborators who are programming. This interactive workshop will cover:
