Description: The main objectives of the project lies on the creation of a map application to help students, researchers or map enthusiastic to build and filter the map based on the data they had. The Global Voyages Map have several important functions that make this objective happen including uploading the file through CSV files or through an online link, generating the map with filter slider and filter voyage and download the map as a standalone html file.
Currently, there are several features implemented which is uploading the file, generating the map and downloading the map. There are filter slider for dates and voyages. However, the only thing that does not work well is the filter slider since the map and the filter resets after the user touches and tinker around the filter.
More surprisingly, the problem only occurs on my end not on the client’s side. I suspect the discrepancies happen because of the mismatch of the versions of R and R studio, but even after I install the same version of the software, the problem persists. Therefore, it takes me so much time to figure out the problem.
I also tried Dash, another R studio alternative, to see if I can make the application work easily with their platform. However, the download button does not work smoothly for Plotply map.
