Do the newer packages include the mapping files? The last time I tried mapping was with earlier versions of R (maptools package) where you had to provide external .shp files which were sometimes a pain to get.

I also vouch for leaflet. It is widely used. When I went to the CAS annual conference last month I was pleased/surprised to learn that the LA public transportation web site uses it.

And Shiny is great too, no surprise since it comes from the Rstudio folks. No need to purchase fancy BI software when you can build one for extremely cheap.

I'll third leaflet as a quick way to map and annotate a map. You can always start standalone with leaflet and build it into a Shiny dashboard when you need to share it.

If I had a huge list of addresses, what is the most efficient way to get longitude and latitude for these locations?
Is there a free method?

I downloaded this Excel add-in where it would get the long. and lat. from google API but since it's doing it for each address, it takes a significant amount of time, and this is pretty much useless.

Any help?
Thank you.

Which works extremely well if you're the only one who is going to be looking at the map. RShiny isn't free if you want it to scale to multiple users.

There's an open source version of the Rshiny server software. It's free and supports multiple users.

Just make sure what you are using it for meets the requirements of the license. Not all licenses for open-source materials are the same and there is a pretty good chance that anything developed and deployed commercially has some restrictions.

Thank you.
If you google "geocoding" you will find numerous options of varying reliability and functionality. Most, will have some kind of cap on the number of addresses that can be processed in a given time period.
