This section aims to give an overview on how to draw maps with R. Under the “map” term, I denote every types of map representation: bubble map, connection map, choropleth map, flow map… Hundreds of packages are available to

draw maps with R and it is hard to know which are the best ones. This section is divided in 3 main parts. The first describes maps done with the leaflet R library. The second shows the possibilities given by the cartography package

developped by thimothée Giraud and Nicolas Lambert. The third parts concerns more basic knowledges you may need to make maps (what is a shapefile, the rgdal library and sp objects..)
