An intro to the basics that instructors often assume you know, but that you probably never had good instruction on! After this course, you should be able to more easily start learning to program (e.g., in R or python), follow instructions and documentation online (e.g., StackExchange), and communicate better with your collaborators who are programming. This interactive workshop will cover:

This workshop will provide an introduction to spatial analysis in R. After a brief review of spatial data types in R we will geocode a set of addresses and then ask spatial questions of those locations. For example, we might ask what school district is a location within, how many locations are within X distance of each shool, or what is the census tract id for a location.
