Create and explore interactive maps using Leaflet to determine where to open the next Chipotle.
Believe it or not, there is a state in the continental United States without a Chipotle! In this Project, you'll explore real data on every Chipotle to identify this state. Then you'll scout out the next Chipotle location using interactive maps and external data to compare proposed locations on several important factors, such as proximity to current Chipotle locations, the distribution of the state's population, and the distance from interstates and tourist attractions.
To complete this Project, you should be comfortable using the tidyverse and leaflet in R. Check out DataCamp's Interactive Maps with leaflet in R and Introduction to the Tidyverse courses to learn about these tools or to brush up on your skills.
The data for this Project was provided by Thinknum, an alternative data provider focused on generating insights off the web.
