In my DataCamp course on making interactive web maps in R using leaflet, I covered how to change the map tile using the addProviderTiles function. This allows us to use the more than 100 map tiles included with the leaflet package. For example, we can create a map using the Esri provider tile. However, there may come a time when we need to customize a map beyond using these provider tiles so that it fits with a particular project or website.

My first course on DataCamp launched on July 5th, 2018. This course uses data on all American colleges and universities to explore various ways of mapping point data and income data to demonstrate how to map polygon data. In the later chapters, I cover how to add a few pieces of flair to leaflet maps in R. Here is one of the interactive maps from the last chapter… The first chapter is free.
