The goal of the AtlasMaker R package is to create multiple, related leaflet maps across tabs for a shiny application without having to copy, paste, and continually edit core code blocks that share much of the same structure across map tabs. Users build lists of any polygons, points, and polylines needed for the project, use the map_server() function to feed built lists and other chosen aesthetics into the tab, and the package does the rest.
