Incorporating logic into a visual made with R using a case_when statement (CC263)

Pat uses a case_when logic statement to construct the title of a visual he’s made in R to change with the date.

The specific output from this project will be a map-based visual that shows the level of drought across the globe. The website we generate in this episode can be found at
