Geospatial Network Visualization

sfnetworks meets ggraph

This post is to document my personal exploration on how to visualize spatial networks created with sfnetworks using ggraph. This all started with a sfnetworks hackathon and should end with a successful pull request (PR) to ggraph.

I should start by saying, that it is probably a good idea to get familiar with ggraph (and tidygraph and sfnetworks while you are at it!) before going through this post.

If you are already a ggraph + tidygraph user and would like to apply the possibilities to the spatial domain, then this is definitely a resource for you and a good opportunity to learn about sfnetworks!
