Create Interactive Web Maps with the JavaScript 'Leaflet' Library

Create and customize interactive maps using the 'Leaflet' JavaScript library and the 'htmlwidgets' package. These maps can be used directly from the R console, from 'RStudio', in Shiny apps and R Markdown documents.


An R Interface to Leaflet Maps

Build Status

Leaflet is an open-source JavaScript library for interactive maps. This R package makes it easy to create Leaflet maps from R.

m = leaflet() %>% addTiles()
m  # a map with the default OSM tile layer

m = m %>% setView(-93.65, 42.0285, zoom = 17)

m %>% addPopups(-93.65, 42.0285, 'Here is the <b>Department of Statistics</b>, ISU')


This package is not on CRAN yet, but you can install it from Github:

if (!require('devtools')) install.packages('devtools')


In addition to the usual R package documentation, we also have extensive docs and examples at: http://rstudio.github.io/leaflet
