Flowmapper, a simple tool for visualizing geographic flows in R

April 12, 2024

One of our PhD students, Johannes Mast, just released a new R package called “flowmapper” which he developed and used within his PhD.

Flowmapper (https://github.com/JohMast/flowmapper) is a new R package that allows users to create beautiful, informative maps of geographic movement. Inspired by the interactive flowmap.gl (https://flowmap.gl/), we designed flowmapper specifically to allow R users the creation of static and customizable scientific graphics. With flowmapper, users can easily visualize flows between geographic locations and customize the flowmaps by using the clear syntax and powerful tools of the ggplot ecosystem.

You can get started with flowmapper today and explore and visualize the patterns in geographic data! Download the package from GitHub and let us know what you think!
