In this one day online course (taught over 2 mornings on the 2nd and 5th February) we will explore how to use R to import, manage and process spatial data. We will also cover the process of making choropleth maps, as well as some basic spatial analysis. Finally, we will cover the use of loops to make multiple maps quickly and easily, one of the major benefits of using a scripting language to make maps, rather than traditional graphic point-and-click interface.
The course covers:
By the end of the course participant will:
This course is ideal for anyone who wishes to use spatial data in their role. This includes government and other public sector researchers who have data with some spatial information (eg: adress, postcode etc) which they wish to show on a map. This course is also suitable for those who wish to have an overview of what spatial data can be used for. No previous experience of spatial data is required.
No previous experience of coding is required, although participants would benefit from some experience of using spatial data (eg: Google maps).
The course will run from 10:00-13:00 both days and will include a mid-morning break.
