Continuing my theme of recreating spreadsheets I’ve seen on Clearly and Simply I’ve had a go at making an Excel map of UK cities and towns that can be highlighted to find their combined population.
Over the past year I've been having a play mapping things in Excel, not the best tool for doing this I know but it does the trick. Mapping the data directly from Excel has the advantage that I've my data is already in Excel. I would like to do the same exercise in R but that's for another day once I get to know R better.
My output looks like this:
Which looks pretty good to me.
