The map used is country.map in the choroplethrMaps package. See country.regions for an object which can help you coerce your regions into the required format.

country_choropleth(df, title = "", legend = "", num_colors = 7,
  zoom = NULL)

Arguments

df

A data.frame with a column named "region" and a column named "value". Elements in the "region" column must exactly match how regions are named in the "region" column in ?country.map.

title

An optional title for the map.

legend

An optional name for the legend.

num_colors

The number of colors to use on the map. A value of 0 uses a divergent scale (useful for visualizing negative and positive numbers), A value of 1 uses a continuous scale (useful for visualizing outliers), and a value in [2, 9] will use that many quantiles.

zoom

An optional vector of countries to zoom in on. Elements of this vector must exactly match the names of countries as they appear in the "region" column of ?country.regions
