Please join the R Workshop Series as Political Science Ph.D. Candidate Sarah Moore leads a session on Geospatial Data & Visualization in R.

R has an incredible number of spatial packages to enable a wide range of spatial tasks. End-to-end spatial analysis can now be done within R including creating and editing spatial data, geoprocessing, spatial statistics and the creation of elegant and interactive maps. But conducting spatial analysis in R is challenging for a variety of reasons including dealing with projections, making sense of spatial classes in R and knowing which of the many spatial packages can be used to perform the analyses you need. This workshop provides detailed coverage of the spatial-related topics you’ll need to conduct spatial analysis entirely within R.

This session is hybrid by Zoom and in Scott Hall 212
