There are several different ways to make maps in R, and I always have to look it up and figure this out again from previous examples that I’ve used. Today I had another look at what’s currently possible and what’s an easy way of making a world map in ggplot2 that doesn’t require fetching data from various places. TLDR: Copy this code to plot a world map using the tidyverse:
There’s some explanation on what reshaping data in R means, why we do it, as well as the history, e.g., melt() vs gather() vs pivot_longer() in a previous post: New intuitive ways for reshaping data in R That post shows how to reshape a single variable that had been recorded/entered across multiple different columns. But if multiple different variables are recorded over multiple different columns, then this is what you might want to do:
I’ve just set up a single page website (= online business card) for myself and my husband: https://pius.cloud/ . This post summarises what I did.

More information: surgicalinformatics.org Introduction Running R programming courses on people’s own laptops is a pain, especially as we use a lot of very useful extensions that actually make learning and using R much easier and more fun. But long installation instructions can be very off-putting for complete beginners, and people can be discouraged to learn programming if installation hurdles invoke their imposter syndrome.
