Exploratory visualization of spatial data with {mapview}

Link visible for attendees

12 pm GMT Talk
12:20 pm GMT Q&A
12.40 pm GMT Conclusion

R has several great packages for creating maps, but if you're looking for speed and ease, it's hard to beat mapview. Sharon will demo how little code you need to create an interactive map to visualize, explore, and share spatial data.

Custom colour scales for {ggplot2}

Link visible for attendees

For the second dataviz lunchtime meetup, Nicola Rennie will talk about colours.

There are many colour palette packages in R that are compatible with {ggplot2}, but sometimes you might want to use your own choice of colours. For example, you might want them to match company or university branding guidelines. In this talk, I'll show you how to make your own custom colour scale functions to add your own colours to {ggplot2} graphics – no more copying and pasting `scale_colour_manual()`!

12 pm GMT Talk
12.20 pm GMT Q&A with the speaker
12.45 pm GMT End of the meetup

Please be aware that the talk will be at 12 pm UK time. Check your time zone before registering.
