  • Hello, I am pleased to say that following my Shiny code demo from a previous EdinbR meeting, I am now able to share a more generic version of the code - see link below. Because I do not own the associated data, I am not able to include that as well - however the script alone should hopefully be enough to demonstrate various things you can achieve in Shiny. Prior to visualising the data within the Shiny app, it underwent some cleaning and transformations. Then, I used the stplanr package (as well as the GraphHopper routing engine) to create the spatial lines connecting the origins and destinations for each unique journey. After these preliminary steps (which are not included in the code below), I was able to move on to creating the Shiny app itself, which looks roughly like this: 1/3 Leaflet map (blurred): the thicker/'redder' the route, the more travelled it is. 2/3 Data table output tab 3/3 visNetwork output tab ❮ ❯...
