  date_min = "1900-01-01",
  date_max = "2100-01-01",
  with_retweets = FALSE,
  location_type = "tweet",
  caption = "",
  proj = NULL,
  forplotly = FALSE
)

Arguments

topic

Character(1) containing the topic to use for the report

Character vector containing the name of the countries and regions to plot or their respective indexes on the Shiny app, default: c(1)

date_min

date_max

Date indicating end of the reporting period, default: "2100-01-01"

Details

Produces a bubble chart map for a particular topic on number of tweets collected based on the provided parameters. The map will display information at country level if more than one country is selected, otherwise it will display bubbles at the smallest possible location identified for each tweet within the period which could be any administrative level or city level.

Tweets associated with a country but with no finer granularity are omitted when displaying a single country.

When an aggregated zone is requested, all countries in that zone are included.

This functions requires that search_loop and detect_loop have already been run successfully to show results.

Value

A named list containing two elements: 'chart' with the ggplot2 figure and 'data' containing the dataframe that was used to build the map.
