State of the a-R-t - Advances in mapping in R

On 16th August I released my latest mapping library in R - mapdeck - using WebGL technology through Uber's library.

Mapdeck provides

- fast GPU rendering
- plotting millions of points/shapes
- interactive 2.5d maps
- web apps through Shiny
- fast exploration of your data

In this talk I introduce Mapdeck, how it compares to other mapping libraries in R, demonstrate its capabilities through examples, and outline what the future holds.

Presentation type: Full length
Session: New Technology
