As spatial data sets get larger, 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.
This course will be structured as follows:
