R for Data Science III: GIS

You are here

Friday, November 17, 2017 - 9:00am to 4:00pm
Event Information: 

This is the third R workshop in a series of four workshops. The purpose of this sequence of four workshops is to take students from no experience in R or data science to a level of proficiency in which they can (1) visualize, (2) manipulate, and (3) perform introductory statistical methods on a dataset. The sequence is divided into 4 full-day sessions, each with a morning and afternoon session that consists of lecture, pair programming, and review.

Map data is now ever-present, and maps provide compelling, salient ways to communicate your data and results. R provides a full suite of packages to (1) analyze, (2) manipulate, and (3) present your data, all in one place, and with a code-based system that allows you to replicate and results and saves hours of time on tasks that researchers often do manually.
