Geospatial Data in R: Mapping

This workshop introduces the use of the R language for producing maps. We will demonstrate the advantages of a code-drive approach such as R for visualizing geospatial data. Participants will gain the skills to quickly and efficiently create a variety of map types for a website, presentation, or publication. In addition to working on hands-on coding exercises, we will also review practical guidance on designing effective maps.

Attendees will need basic familiarity with R and RStudio to follow along with the exercises. Knowledge of tidyverse packages such as ggplot2 and dplyr is also helpful.

This workshop is a companion to Geospatial Data in R: Processing and Analysis, which focuses on data analysis more than visualization. 

This event is offered virtually in accordance with Duke's Coronavirus events policies. A Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published, please contact the instructor at any time prior to the conclusion of the workshop.
