Event description

Description

This Workshop is Proudly Hosted by BayGeo and the University of San Francisco's Geospatial Analysis Lab


Learning Objectives

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 packages 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, raster operations, and selected spatial analyses.

By the end of the workshop, students will be able to import vector and raster data into R, do basic data manipulations including projections and format conversions, query spatial objects using attribute values and spatial relationships, perform common geoprocessing tasks, automate workflows with R code, work with online data and services, prepare data for analyses, and perform basic spatial statistics.

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. Students who have not used R before are welcome to take the workshop, but are expected to complete the [Introduction to R](https://www.datacamp.com/courses/free-introduction-to-r) online course from DataCamp (free) prior to the first session.
