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