R Geospatial Fundamentals: Raster Data

April 12, 2022, 2:00pm
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 raster data, which typically represents geographic information in a grid of regular sized cells.

R Fundamentals: Parts 1-4

April 4, 2022, 9:00am
This workshop is a four-part introductory series that will teach you R from scratch with clear introductions, concise examples, and support documents. You will learn how to download and install the open-sourced R Studio software, understand data and basic manipulations, import and subset data, explore and visualize data, and understand the basics of automation in the form of loops and functions. After completion of this workshop you will have a foundational understanding to create, organize, and utilize workflows for your personal research.

R Fundamentals: Parts 1-2 (5pm-8pm)

March 28, 2022, 5:00pm
Evening workshop 5-8pm. This workshop is a two-part introductory series that will teach you R from scratch with clear introductions, concise examples, and support documents. You will learn how to download and install the open-sourced R Studio software, understand data and basic manipulations, import and subset data, explore and visualize data, and understand the basics of automation in the form of loops and functions. After completion of this workshop you will have a foundational understanding to create, organize, and utilize workflows for your personal research.

R Geospatial Fundamentals: Vector Data, Parts 1-2

April 5, 2022, 2:00pm
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.

R Census Data Wrangling and Mapping

April 1, 2022, 10:00am
Since 1790, the US Census has been THE source of data about American people, providing valuable insights to social scientists and humanists. Mapping these data by census geographies adds more value by allowing researchers to explore spatial trends and outliers. This workshop will introduce three key packages for streamlining census data workflows in R: tigris, tidycensus and tmap. Participants will learn how to download census tabular data for one or more geographic aggregation units or years, download the associated census geographic data and then join these data for analysis and mapping.
