Description

Brief description:

This workshop will focus on R, a free and open source statistical package used by an increasing number of geospatial practitioners. R is supported by a large community of users and has a large number of libraries for spatial analysis. This workshop will cover the basics of working with spatial data in R, including importing and exporting spatial data, geoprocessing, spatial queries and joins, data wrangling, and select spatial analyses. Emphasis will be placed on learning how to complete tasks you've never done before and automate data processing workflows. Some prior experience with GIS is expected. The first class will cover basic R syntax and data wrangling. Students who have never used R before are welcome to take the workshop, but are expected to complete an additional online tutorial (free) before the first class.

The general outline for the workshop includes:

Apr 19. Introduction to R and Data Wrangling

Apr 26. Spatial Data Classes, Importing and Exporting Data, Intro to Visualization

May 3. Spatial Queries, Joins, and Geoprocessing

May 10. Intro to Spatial Analyses

This class meets four times (6:00 - 9:00 p.m.): on April 19, 26; May 3, 10.

Important Notes:

  • The workshop venue may change based on classroom availability. Registered students will be given advance notice if this is the case.

  • If the workshop is held, as planned, at CCSF's Mission campus, computers will be provided for workshop exercises. Alternately, students are welcome to bring their own laptops.

  • If the workshop must be moved to another venue, students will be required to bring their own wi-fi enabled laptops to class, either a PC or a Mac.
