Interactive maps are indispensable tools for exploring spatial datasets because of their real-world context and intuitiveness. For a comprehensive understanding of the data, it is often necessary to switch between several map layers (such as states and counties) and to analyze multiple variables simultaneously - both of which are challenging. In this talk, I will show how we can overcome these challenges using the leafdown package, which allows us to create multi-layer maps embedded in Shiny apps.
