🔗Colorado: Hex Plots, APIs, and D3js
After my last blogpost I was a little frustrated at how poorly the title text resized using ggplot and ggsave. It was a minor issue to be honest, but I figured I could learn something new by exporting the data as geojson and plotting it using D3 js. So here it goes.
🔗Colorado: Hex Plots, API packages, and R
I've been seeing a lot of hex plots made with r. They are a way to semi-artistically visualize spatial data. Although I don't think this is completely appropriate for most visualizations, it looks amazing. Here are a few examples of how I made hex plots in R.
🔗Spatially Balanced Sample Designs in R with `spsurvey::grts()`
We've been using spatially balanced stratified study designs more frequently at work these days. They are a good way to make probabilistic inference over large areas. A popular method of creating these designs is using the R function
spsurvey::grts(). The following is a basic (very basic) explainer of how to get up and running with
grts()function and what it is. But a bit about GRTS and spatially balanced study design before we get coding.

This is a collections of resources that have helped me learn and understand statistics in R.
🔗Kernel Density Estimation in R
For a recent project I needed to run a kernel density estimation in R, turning GPS points into a raster of point densities. Below is how I accomplished that.
