A choropleth map is a map in which areas are shaded or patterned in proportion to the measurement of the statistical variable being displayed on the map. Here is an example using the cartography library. See graph #173 for a hand made version.

when I test this example,
the code below:
choroLayer(spdf = africa, df = africa@data, var = “POP2005″)
comes an error
” var is not numeric”.
Could you kindly tell me how to solve this problem?
Thank you in advance.

I also had the same problem. You need to study the structure of the africa dataset using function glimpse from tidyverse package.
You’ll see that variable POP2005 is a “factor” and not “numeric”.
To fix this, use the function as.numeric as below:

africa$POP2005 <-as.numeric(africa$POP2005)

hope this helps
