Intro to Geospatial Raster and Vector Data

Instruction & Training 1312

This event is an example-driven two day workshop on August 9 and 11, 2022 for using geospatial raster and vector data in R. This workshop will include working with spatial metadata (extent and coordinate reference systems), reprojecting spatial data, and working with raster time series data. This workshop will require some knowledge of R/RStudio. If you have no prior experience in R/RStudio, we recommend attending the Intro to R course first.

Short tutorials alternate with hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged both to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions. Participants should bring your own laptop to work on. This should be a Windows, Mac, or Linux machine, not a Chromebook or tablet. You should also be sure to have admin privileges on your laptop.

This event runs on Tuesday and Thursday, August 9 and 11, 2022 from 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
