Spatial R - introductory workshop

Details

Our December meeting will be extra special! Join us for this introductory workshop lead by Brittany A. Bankovich, from the Center for Spatial Analysis at FWC. After the workshop we will head downtown for an end of the year social! (At Big Top - walking distance from the library)

During the workshop, Brittany will cover importing spatial data, projections and transformations, basic geometric operations (buffering, intersections, clipping, erasing, distance calculations), useful raster operations (reading them in, reclassifying, summarizing raster data using vector data), basic mapping using ggplot and ggmaps, and a brief demonstration of mapping using leaflet (can implement coarse-scale real-time data like weather).

Make sure you have installed this packages before the meeting:
## Geoprocessing tools
library(sp)
library(rgdal)
library(rgeos)
library(raster)
library(dismo)

# Mapping tools
library(maptools)
library(plyr)
library(ggplot2)
library(ggmap)
library(broom)
library(maps)
library(ggsn)
library(sf)
library(rasterVis)

We will meet at the Foundation Room at the library, which means we need you to RSVP. The space is limited in this room. Thanks!
