R package with shapefile, metadata and visualization functions for US Zip Code Tabulated Areas (ZCTAs).
Training & Development
Due to this package's size (~60MB) it is hosted on github, not CRAN. To install the latest stable release type the following from an R console:
# install.packages("devtools") library(devtools) install_github('arilamstein/choroplethrZip@v1.4.0')
This package ships with two vignettes which explain how to use the package. For convenience I have also published them online:
- Creating ZIP Code Choropleths with choroplethrZip
- Creating ZIP Code Choropleths of US Census Data with choroplethrZip
- Zip Code Demographics with choroplethrZip v1.3.0
In short: type
?zip_choropleth_acs after installing the package to get started.
