Center for Data and Visualization Sciences (CDVS) Workshop Series

R has become a popular and reproducible option for supporting spatial and statistical analysis. This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how to plot x/y coordinates; how to generate thematic chloropleths with US Census and other federal data; import GIS shapefiles; and create interactive maps on the web. The focus will be on mapping (making a visual). Please see the schedule for related workshops that focus on performing geospatial analysis using R, and that showcase some of the geospatial work that you can do with programmic tools such as R and Python.
