Geospatial Data in R: Mapping
[In-person] 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.
This workshop is a companion to Geospatial Data in R: Processing and Analysis, which focuses on data analysis more than visualization.
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 will be held in person in Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room), but may move to virtual depending on Duke Coronavirus policies, health or equipment considerations. Please watch your email for updates. All participants are required to follow current Duke Coronavirus policies to attend the workshop.
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.
