Hi all,
I'm trying to draw a bubble plot over a map -- where the map shows local government areas (LGA) in Australia (or other structures under the Australian Standard Geographical Classification), but am not sure where I can find the data to plot such maps (e.g. draw the state of Northern Territory but also showing LGA divisions).
Any help will be greatly appreciated, apologies if this is a simple question -- this is the first time I'm trying to draw a map in R :).
