Mapping in R

I’ve been having great fun getting to grips with drawing maps showing data in R. There is a good tutorial here and extra information here and here.

I decided to use the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB)  2015 Big Garden Birdwatch. It took some time to align the data they give for “counties” with something I could find maps for. It therefore won’t be completely accurate especially as the result for a region is the simple mean of the sub regions.

It was a fun learning exercise though. Here are a couple of maps.
