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 the following week: one that focuses on geospatial analysis using R, and one that showcases some of the analysis that you can do with programmic tools such as R and Python.
