Building a choropleth map of Italy using mapIT

R blog By January 20, 2015 Tags: , , , , 7 Comments

In the R environment, different packages to draw maps are available. I lost the count by now; surely, sp and ggmap deserve consideration. Despite the great availability of R functions dedicated to this topic, in the past, when I needed to draw a very basic map of Italy with regions marked with different colours (namely a choropleth map), I had a bit of difficulties.

Maps in R: choropleth maps

This is the third article of the Maps in R series. After having shown how to draw a map without placing data on it and how to plot point data on a map, in this installment the creation of a choropleth map will be presented.

A choropleth map is a thematic map featuring regions colored or shaded according to the value assumed by the variable of interest in that particular region.

Maps in R: Introduction - Drawing the map of Europe

R blog By December 19, 2012 Tags: , , 18 Comments

This post is a brief follow-up to a question that appeared some time ago on the “The R Project for Statistical Computing” LinkedIn group, which I’m reporting here:

How can I draw a map of MODERN Europe?

Hi, I'm trying to draw a map of modern Europe but I've found only maps of twenty years ago, with Yugoslavia and Czechoslovakia still united!!!
Does anyone know where I can get a more recent map to be employed with packages such as 'sp' or 'maps'?
Thank you very much!

Two different solutions to the above question will be provided here, using two different R packages.
