For more information about projections and how they work I highly recommend the Vox Media video I mentioned in the video - All Maps Are Wrong.

Every chart in the slides was created using R. Every static map was built with `ggplot2` and the interactive maps were made with a mix of the leaflet and mapview package. The 3D interactive globe was created using the threejs package.

You can see the RMarkdown document used to make the slides from this lesson (and all of the code used to make the maps) here.
