Mike Rogers Wow the highcharts license is very pricey though, Shiny and Google APIs are open-source but not as pretty. I would love to hear of some other options for making commercially-used charts and chloropleth maps!

I made this one: https://mliq.shinyapps.io/HealthMap/ . Does that count? Unfortunately, it looks a bit better on IE than other browsers, and Google Charts API through Shiny is not as customizable as I'd like, so I'm looking forward to learning about any better solutions you all may know about. Any streamlined ways of taking data from an excel/CSV file to a chart?

Mike Rogers that highmaps looks pretty good, thanks, reading the docs now.

Hi Michael Liquori and Katarzyna Walsh,

Thanks so much for participating in this week's contest! You both did great and it seems silly to pick one winner between just two awesome entires, so I'm going to make an exception and say you both won. :) I'll send an individual email to each of you shortly.

The next contest is about designing a rebrand.
