Introduction to spatial analysis of ecological data using R (ISPE01)

29 July 2019 - 2 August 2019

Course overview:

The aim of the course is to introduce you to a spatial data processing, analysis, and visualization capabilities of the R programming language. It will teach a range of techniques using a mixture of lectures, computer exercises and case studies.

By the end of the course participants should:

  • Understand the basic concepts of spatial data analysis
  • Know R’s spatial capabilities
  • Understand how to import a range of spatial data sources into R
  • Be confident with using R’s command-line interface (CLI) for spatial data processing
  • Be able to perform a range of attribute operations (e.g. subsetting and joining), spatial operations (e.g. distance relations, topological relations), and geometry operations (e.g. clipping, aggregations)
  • Understand coordinate reference systems (CRSs), be able to decide which CRS to use, and how to reproject spatial data
  • Know how to visualize the results of a spatial analysis in the form of static and interactive maps
  • Have the confidence to apply spatial analysis skills to their own projects
