Spatial Analysis with R
Do you already use R and want to learn more about working with geospatial data? You don’t necessarily need GIS software. Often you can analyze your data and make maps entirely in R.
In this workshop we will introduce methods for processing and analyzing geospatial data in R. We will talk about how different types of spatial data work in R, walk though common spatial data operations such joins, and perform basic spatial analysis.
This workshop is a companion to Mapping in R, which focus on visualization more than analysis.
We assume participants will have some familiarity with R and RStudio. If you are brand new to R, we suggest attending (or watching a recording of) our Intro to R workshop first. Basic knowledge of GIS concepts is helpful.
Please bring a laptop to follow along with the tutorials.
The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.
