Introduction to Using R for Spatial Analysis

On Friday 23rd January 2015, I ran a one day workshop on an Introduction to Using R for Spatial Analysis. We had 18 participants (thanks for squeezing in, everyone!) from a wide variety of backgrounds in R, from never having used R to using R relatively regularly, but not used it as a GIS. The course ran really well, and I was very happy with it, given that it was the first time I had run this course in this format. If you are interested in attending this course in the future, please send me a message (using the contact form on this site) and I will add you to a list to hear about future courses.

I’ve attached the materials I used to this blog post (see below).

I would also ask you to let me know when you use my material, as it’s useful for me to know how many people are using it, and what sort of courses they are using it for.

    The Data Download link above appears to be broke/removed. I was just wondering if there might be an alternative means to obtain this data. Thanks in advance.
