R Data Wrangling and Manipulation: Parts 1-2

March 1, 2022, 5:00pm
Evening workshop 5-8pm. It is said that 80% of data analysis is spent on the process of cleaning and preparing the data for exploration, visualization, and analysis. This R workshop will introduce the dplyr and tidyr packages to make data wrangling and manipulation easier. Participants will learn how to use these packages to subset and reshape data sets, do calculations across groups of data, clean data, and other useful tasks.

R Geospatial Fundamentals: Raster Data

December 3, 2021, 12:00pm
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.
