Introduction to R as a tool for mapping and spatial analysis
This is a beginner-intermediate level of R workshop that introduces the use of R software for handling spatial data. We will discuss the advantage of R in displaying and analyzing the GIS objects (e.g., shapefile and raster), and demonstrate the basic statistical analysis through an example. Participants are required to bring their own laptops having R and R studio installed. Installation of several R packages (e.g., rgdal, sp, raster, and ggplot2) is also encouraged.
Workshop will be delivered by Hyeyoung Woo, Ph.D. candidate, Biometrics lab, Department of Forest Resources Management, The University of British Columbia.
