In this fast-paced webinar, Marie will show you how to create inset maps, faceted maps, animated maps, interactive mapping applications, cartograms, raster maps, and bridge over from R to QGIS thanks to the packages sf, tmap, raster, leaflet, shiny, ggplot2, ggmap, grid, mapview, cartogram, and qgisprocess.

This webinar builds on an earlier session that introduced simple GIS tasks as well as map production in R using the packages sf and tmap. To view the recording of that previous webinar, visit our Training Materials site.
