Spatial Data Analysis in R
Venue: University of Manchester, M13 9PL.
Sorry, this event has now ended.
As spatial datasets get larger and more sophisticated software needs to be harnessed for their analysis. R is now a widely used open source software platform for working with spatial data thanks to its powerful analysis and visualisation packages.
The focus of this course is providing participants with the understanding needed to apply R's powerful suite of geographical tools to their own problems.
- Introducing R as a GIS
- The structure of spatial objects in R
- Loading and interrogating spatial data
- Visualising spatial datasets
- Acquiring external data with R
- Point pattern analysis and spatial interpolation
- Geographical models in R
Participants with spatial data problems who are not making use of R and are falling behind in the ever changing world of data science.
A basic understanding of the R software is assumed. Each participant will need to bring their own laptop installed with the latest versions of Rstudio and R software.
