Game of Thrones: An R Map to Westeros

Gokhan Ciflikli, PhD candidate at LSE, scraped the Game of Thrones scripts and mined their text using the quanteda package. Gokhan showcases some cool features of the package, which may be an alternative to the tidytext package. In the process, Gokhan also downloaded cartographic data of Westeros and build the beautiful map below, using tmap. This map looks like it’s built by a professional! Very well done!

The GoT font you can find here and Gokhan shared the script here on GitHub.
