Center for Data and Visualization Sciences (CDVS) Workshop Series

Do you already use R and want to learn more about working with geospatial data? You don't necessarily need GIS software. Often you can analyze your data and make maps entirely in R. In this workshop we will introduce methods for processing and analyzing geospatial data in R. We will talk about how different types of spatial data work in R, walk though common spatial data operations such joins, and perform basic spatial analysis. This workshop is a companion to Mapping in R, which focus on visualization more than analysis.
