mapview as an alternative and have a quick question about enabling the hover popup windows.
As you can see in this example with polygons, when you move your mouse over each polygon, a small popup window appears with each feature ID. The vector data description states:
in case you have the latest version of leaflet installed the map will also have a scale bar in the bottom left corner and provide labels of feature IDs if you hover over the features.
I have both Leaflet and Leaflet for R updated on my computer, yet this hover feature is not activated. The scale bar is also not shown. I used the
mapview example of gadmCHE, as you'll see in the image below:
Does anyone know if this "latest version of leaflet" refers to leaflet.js or the R package
leaflet? I just downloaded Leaflet 1.0.0-rc3 here and also made sure that I updated the
leaflet package, so I'm not sure where to go from here to enable that hover/scalebar feature.
