The aim of the course is to familiarize participants with spatial analysis with R. On the first two days of the course focus is on vector data and the last course day is spent on raster data.
 
Topics of the course:
  • Handling and plotting vector data in R
  • Spatial operations (intersection, clipping, conversions etc)
  • Spatial analysis of vector data (clustering, density surfaces, autocorrelation)
  • Visualizing spatial data
  • Spatial analysis with R in Taito supercluster
  • Running R code in parallel, short intro
  • Raster basics with R
  • Raster data manipulation
  • Map algebra
  • R Raster package in spatial modelling
 
The course consists of a flexible combination of lectures, examples and exercises with an emphasis on hands-on experience.
 

Prerequisistes:

  • Basics of geoinformatics and geostatistics
  • Basic use of R, no earlier experience with R spatial packages is needed. For self-study of basics R for beginners course material can be used.

This course is similar to the Geospatial data analysis with R course kept in 2017 at CSC.
