This visual uses Maps package and Geosphere package to draw a map of Australia and dots on that map finally connecting them with lines. Using sample migration statistics data from different cities within Australia to the city of Melbourne, R visual shows the trend of migration by color coding the lines and shading higher count cities on top of the lower ones.
Prerequisites (The sample .pbix files won't work without installing the following)

Power BI does not include the R engine. Therefore, a seperate installation is required to install R on your local computer.
Required R Packages
MRO 3.3.1, CRAN 3.3.1
To get this R visual script to work, users will need to add the following commands before the two libray function calls:
thanks for the visual. Really great one.
Can we install these packages before even having R installed? and sorry for the question but... how do we install packages?
thanks for your help
You need R engine installed to run R in Power BI. You can use any R IDE (like RStudio) to install packages
This visual is very impressive. If you consider to convert this or some of your other R-visuals to R-powered-custom visuals, out team will be happy to assist you.
The visibility of R-powered custom visuals is greater and it is not limited for R-users.
