Earlier this week I published a data visualization on the Facebook Engineering blog which, to my surprise, has received a lot of media coverage I’ve received a lot comments about the image, many asking for more details on how I created it . When I tell people I used R , the reaction I get is roughly what I would expect if I told them I made it with Microsoft Paint and a bottle of Jägermeister .
This is the first post of a short series to show some code I have learnt to produce maps with R. Some time ago I found this infographic from The New York Times (via this page ) and I wondered how a multivariate choropleth map could be produced with R.
You might not know it, but there are actually a ton of data and visualization blogs out there. I'm a bit of a feed addict subscribing to just about anything with a chart or a mention of statistics on it (and naturally have to do some feed-cleaning every now and then).
