Mapping and spatial analysis (GIS) with R
Where: Free University Berlin (Germany)
When: 20 – 24 April 2020

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) encompass data, methods and software to collect, represent and analyse spatial data in a myriad of ways. GIS operations can also be carried out in R, thus allowing seamless integration with other R scripts for data visualization and analysis. This course will include both basic theoretical lessons and practical hands-on sessions on the use of R as a GIS, for automated and reproducible mapping and analysis of spatial environmental data.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
‒ Know the basics of GIS, mapping and cartographic projections
‒ Gather spatial data, import them into R and produce maps using scripts
‒ Perform several types of spatial analyses in R
‒ Plot and export maps with the results of these analyses
