Introduction to Spatial Data & Using R as a GIS

9:00 AM, Friday 20 May 2022 (7 hours)
  Virtual session
The virtual room join links will be shown here a few minutes before the session start time.\n
The virtual room is expected to open at approximately 8:35 AM.

In this one day course we will explore how to use R to import, manage and process spatial data. We will also cover the process of making choropleth maps, as well as some basic spatial analysis. Finally, we will cover the use of loops to make multiple maps quickly and easily, one of the major benefits of using a scripting language to make maps, rather than traditional graphic point-and-click interface.

No previous experience of coding is required, although participants would benefit from some experience of using spatial data (e.g. Google Maps).

“It was a great introduction – I came to the session with NO understanding and have left feeling much more confident to learn more on my own.”
Olivia Reeves-O’Toole, PhD Student, University of Liverpool
