Additional information
Content: giscoord@csc.fi
Practicalities: event-support@csc.fi
The aim of the course is to familiarize participants with spatial analysis with R. On the first day of the course vector data is in focus, on the second day raster data.
 
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.
Compared to last years Geospatial data analysis with R course this is a totally different course.
