One of my biggest issues with mapping comes at the data joining level (US). I have done a bit of research and used various packages in the past with some ranging levels of success. Is there a concise and accurate way to merge zip code to county and state level as well as merging zip code count data to zip code mapping coordinates.

Thanks, I am excited for this BoF.


I feel your pain.
There are some US Census datasets that are helpful, as well as sf objects that have the hierarchy mapped out, but I generally confuse myself when working with it.

Looking forward to this BoF.


I'm looking forward to join this meeting!
