Well worth it.

by Charles Smith
I found out about Ari Lamstein's courses when I attended a webinar he gave recently. This course is informative and very well paced and presented. Ari also gives you a wealth of resources for projects that will use choroplethr and for future self training. I highly recommend it if you are working with maps in R.

Clearly marked road map for learning how to map data.

Well thought out teaching plan. Easy to follow video. Even pace allowed me to digest underlying R code and data concepts. I was somewhat familiar with R before this course, but I picked-up some tips on basic techniques that I found helpful aside from mapping. I was a complete neophyte regarding Choroplethr before, but now feel confident about employing Choroplethr in my next mapping project.
