A Crash-Course in Spatial Analyses Using Program R
Description: The workshop is implemented in two segments. The first segment will introduce participants to Program R (http://www.r-project.org/) and the Integrated Development Environment (IDE) of R Studio (http://www.rstudio.com). We will begin by covering basic data management, summaries and visualization. After getting a ‘feel’ for R and the R Studio interface, we will move onto introducing concepts and methods for performing several types of spatial analyses including raster/vector manipulation and integration, point-pattern analysis, geostatistics, kernel density estimates, spatial autocorrelation and regression. The examples will be introduced relatively quickly and are meant to provide you with an overview of how to perform these same analyses on your own data.
