Introduction to GIS & spacial analysis in R

 Table of contents
Workshop for the University of British Columbia Biodiversity Research Centre.


This workshop is an introduction to the fundamentals of GIS in R. We will see how to import, handle, and analyze spatial data in R and how to create static and interactive maps. We will use the new generation of packages: sf, terra, and tmap.

No prior knowledge of the topic is required, but some basic experience with R is highly recommended.

Workshop requirements

You will be given access to an RStudio server, so no prior local installation is needed.
