Location: Remote via Zoom. Link will be sent on the morning of the event.
Date & Time: This workshop runs from 12pm-3pm on Friday, December 3 (rescheduled from November 12 due to unforseen scheduling conflict)
Start Time: D-Lab workshops start 10 minutes after the scheduled start time (“Berkeley Time”). We will admit all participants from the waiting room at that time.
Geospatial data are an important component of data visualization and analysis in the social sciences, humanities, and elsewhere. The R programming language is a great platform for exploring these data and integrating them into your research. This workshop focuses on fundamental operations for reading, writing, manipulating and mapping vector data, which encodes location as points, lines and polygons.
- Raster data
Raster data structures (the raster package)
Mapping with raster and vector data
Spatial analysis of raster and vector data
Raster stacks and raster algebra
Prerequisites: Recommended (but not required) to take the 2-part vector-based version of D-Lab’s R Geospatial Fundamentals: Vector Data:
- Part I: Core concepts, vector data, and plotting
- Part II: Spatial analysis
- Part III: Raster data
