@becausealice2 thanks for sharing! Most of his advice is pretty good. I kind of laughed at the suggestion of opening up 10 tabs of articles to read from. Although I probably end up going to 10+ articles anyways, just opening them up immediately seemed funny. But the one on ELI5 seems like a good one.

Yeah I spend a lot of time on there but it never occurred to me to use it for something I actually need to know. O felt so dumb when he said that 😂

Haha yeah. I do really believe in the you don't know it until you implement it sort of thinking :ok_hand: Explaining it or reaching someone else also is a really good way to learn something.

Does anybody know how to do a heatmap not based on density but by another variable in R?
and then map that onto a geospatial map?

@mcbarlowe I've never done maps on R, but you can check out http://mapinseconds.com/ which will plot density or one other variable on a geospatial map.
@mcbarlowe if you do find out for R, please let us know :smile:

@erictleung I figured out how to do it by density but not by another calculated variable apparently. If my data matched up to county lines I could do it that way but its based more off of plots because it is at zipcode level and there really aren't any packages that go that granular in mapping
