This tutorial is going to demonstrate how to make gorgeous maps of cities using streets and other geographic features. This is enabled by the osmdata package.
I borrow heavily from the excellent tutorial at ggplot2tutor.com. I extend this tutorial in order to a) demonstrate deeper functionality of this package; and b) to provide additional instruction and application in ggplot, the tidyverse, and rvest.
I’ve given one of these maps as a gift, printed in a large poster format and framed. You’ll be able to make and customize your own maps and learn some new R functionality along the way.
