CDVS Workshop: Geospatial Data in R: Processing and Analysis
The R language has become a popular option for working with geospatial data. Compared to traditional GIS software, the code-driven approach of R can be more reproducible and efficient. This workshop gives participants the skills to perform geospatial workflows entirely within R. We will discuss how different types of geospatial data work in R, walk through examples of data operations, and explore common analysis methods for geospatial data. Note: 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.
