PR statistics are pleased to offer through their funding scheme 5 all inclusive places on the up-coming course "Introduction to spatial analysis of ecological data using R"

All inclusive course fees have been subsidized by over 40% to £450 (from £775.00).

This fee covers the 5 day course and accommodation, breakfast, lunches, and refreshments (full details at the bottom of this email).

This course will be delivered by Dr Jakub Nowasad from July 29th - August 2nd in Glasgow City Centre.

Application deadline is Friday 28th June and decisions will be made by Sunday 30th June.

Course overview: The aim of the course is to introduce you to a spatial data processing, analysis, and visualization capabilities of the R programming language. It will teach a range of techniques using a mixture of lectures, computer exercises and case studies.

By the end of the course participants should:

Understand the basic concepts of spatial data analysis Know R’s spatial capabilities Understand how to import a range of spatial data sources into R Be confident with using R’s command-line interface (CLI) for spatial data processing Be able to perform a range of attribute operations (e.g. subsetting and joining), spatial operations (e.g. distance relations, topological relations), and geometry operations (e.g. clipping, aggregations) Understand coordinate reference systems (CRSs), be able to decide which CRS to use, and how to reproject spatial data Know how to visualize the results of a spatial analysis in the form of static and interactive maps Have the confidence to apply spatial analysis skills to their own projects

ALL INCLUSIVE PACKAGE – Includes breakfast, lunch, refreshments and welcome dinner Monday evening. Self-catering facilities are available in the accommodation. Accommodation is approximately a 6-minute walk from the PR informatics head office. Accommodation is multiple occupancy (max 3-4 people) single sex en-suite rooms. Arrival Sunday 28th July (between 17:00 – 21:00 and departure Friday 2nd August (accommodation must be vacated by 09:15).
