View source: R/gvisMap.R

The gvisMap function reads a data.frame and creates text output referring to the Google Visualisation API, which can be included into a web page, or as a stand-alone page.

Usage

1
gvisMap(data, locationvar = "", tipvar = "", options = list(), chartid)

Arguments

data

a data.frame. The data has to have at least two columns with location name (locationvar) and the variable to display the text in the tip icon (tipvar).

locationvar

column name of data with the geo locations to be analysed. The locations can be provide in two formats:

Format 1

'latitude:longitude'. See the example below.

Format 2

The first column should be a string that contains an address. This address should be as complete as you can make it.

tipvar

column name of data with the string text displayed over the tip icon.

options

list of configuration options for Google Map.

\Sexpr[results=rd]{gsub("CHARTNAME", googleChartName, readLines(file.path(".", "inst", "mansections", "GoogleChartToolsURLConfigOptions.txt")))} \Sexpr[results=rd]{paste(readLines(file.path(".", "inst", "mansections", "gvisOptions.txt")))}
chartid

character. If missing (default) a random chart id will be generated based on chart type and tempfile

Details

The maps are the well known Google Maps.

Value

\Sexpr[results=rd]{paste(gvisChartName)}

returns list of class \Sexpr[results=rd]{paste(readLines(file.path(".", "inst", "mansections", "gvisOutputStructure.txt")))}

## Example with latitude and longitude information
## Plot Hurricane Andrew (1992) storm path:

data(Andrew)

M1 <- gvisMap(Andrew, "LatLong" , "Tip",
              options=list(showTip=TRUE, showLine=TRUE, enableScrollWheel=TRUE,
                           mapType='hybrid', useMapTypeControl=TRUE,
                           width=800,height=400))

plot(M1) 


## Example with address, here UK post-code and some html code in tooltip

df <- data.frame(Postcode=c("EC3M 7HA", "EC2P 2EJ"),
                 Tip=c("<a href='https://www.lloyds.com'>Lloyd's</a>", 
                 "<a href='https://www.guildhall.cityoflondon.gov.uk/'>Guildhall</a>"))
 
M2 <- gvisMap(df, "Postcode", "Tip",
              options=list(showTip=TRUE, mapType='normal',
              enableScrollWheel=TRUE))
 
plot(M2)

## Change mapping icons
M3 <- gvisMap(df, "Postcode", "Tip",
              options=list(showTip=TRUE, mapType='normal',
              enableScrollWheel=TRUE,
              icons=paste0("{",
              "'default': {'normal': 'https://icons.iconarchive.com/",
              "icons/icons-land/vista-map-markers/48/",
              "Map-Marker-Ball-Azure-icon.png',\n",
              "'selected': 'https://icons.iconarchive.com/",
              "icons/icons-land/vista-map-markers/48/",
              "Map-Marker-Ball-Right-Azure-icon.png'",
              "}}")))
                        
plot(M3)
