What is mapdeck?

An R library which lets you plot interactive maps using Mapbox GL and Deck.gl

What is mapbox?

Mapbox is the location data platform for mobile and web applications. We provide building blocks to add location features like maps, search, and navigation into any experience you create.

What is deck.gl?

deck.gl is a WebGL-powered framework for visual exploratory data analysis of large datasets.

How do I use it?

Development version

Version v0.1.006+ sees quite a lot of changes, so I need users to test their functions and report any errors.

To use the development version you need some other development dependant libraries

## install dependent libraries first
devtools::install_github("SymbolixAU/spatialwidget", force = T)

## then mapdeck

Getting Started

Mapdeck uses Mapbox maps, and to use Mapbox you need an access token.

Once you’ve generate a token you can use their maps.

Call mapdeck(token = 'your_token') to generate a basic map. Then start adding layers by using one of the various add_*() functions.

url <- 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/plotly/datasets/master/2011_february_aa_flight_paths.csv'
flights <- read.csv(url)
flights$info <- paste0("<b>",flights$airport1, " - ", flights$airport2, "</b>")

mapdeck(token = key, style = mapdeck_style('dark')) %>%
    data = flights
    , origin = c("start_lon", "start_lat")
    , destination = c("end_lon", "end_lat")
    , stroke_from = "airport1"
    , stroke_to = "airport2"
    , tooltip = "info"
    , layer_id = 'arclayer'
