ONLINE COURSE – Making beautiful and effective maps in R (MAPR01) This course will delivered live

This course will be delivered from 15-16 July at Central European Summer Time by Dr Jakub Nowosad.
All sessions will be recorded and made available allowing attendees from different time zones to follow a day behind with an additonal 1/2 days help provided if required

Course overview:
The aim of the course is to show you how to use R to make pretty, yet appealing maps using the R programming language. The course will teach you how to create publication-ready static maps, animated maps, interactive maps, and simple map applications using a mixture of lectures and computer exercises.  This course will suit many people working with seabird data collected from a 'field' environment thus needing to incorporate various variables showing attendees creative and effective ways to display qualitative and quantitative data. Several R packages related to spatial data processing and visualization will be introduced during the course.

By the end of the course participants should:
Understand the basic concepts behind the tmap package
Be able to create a variety types of static maps, including raster maps, choropleth maps, and point maps
Know how to create interactive maps and simple map applications using the shiny package
Be able to create facet maps and map animations to represent spatiotemporal phenomenon
Know how to utilize  specific-purpose mapping packages to create cartograms or grid maps
Have the confidence to apply map making skills to their own projects
