Welcome to the Introduction to Maps in R Shiny and Leaflet course. In this course we will be creating a fully functional web gis application using the R programming language. This application will be comprised of different types of maps ranging from point maps to heatmaps, to choropleth maps.
We will also be using different datasets ranging from dataframes to spatial data frames, which we will use to transform and visualize our data on different types of maps, depending on the use case. Once we have completed the course we will be equipped with extremely valuable skills, that we can use to build sophisticated web map applications of any kind and tell spatial data stories that almost anyone can interpret and understand.

Some of the skills you will acquire from taking this course range from:

● Working with spatial data in the R programming language
● Installing and using R studio
● Using the leaflet web mapping library
● Creating a variety of maps and integrating it into a single application
