I don't have a lot of experience with making maps, so when I was asked to make a viz of businesses in SF, I stick with a scatterplot. (made with ggplot2...don't draw any conclusions from the data)

's the code
businesses %>%
ggplot(aes(x = long, y = lat)) +
geom_point(alpha = .01, color = '') +
coord_fixed() + theme_void() +
theme(panel.background = element_rect(fill = ''))

@alexwein That looks remarkably like a crime-map of SF I once created :D
