Getting Started with Spatial Data Analysis in R

Getting Started with Spatial Data Analysis in R

Published Feb 25, 2016

Spatial and spatial-temporal data have become pervasive nowadays. We are constantly generating spatial data from route planners, sensors, mobile devices, and computers in different fields like Transportation, Agriculture, Social Media. These data need to be analyzed to generate hidden insights that can improve business processes, help fight crime in cities, and much more.

Simply creating static maps from these data is not enough. In this webinar we shall look at techniques of importing and exporting spatial data into R; understanding the foundation classes for spatial data; manipulation of spatial data; and techniques for spatial visualization. This webinar is meant to give you introductory knowledge of spatial data analysis in R needed to understand more complex spatial data modeling techniques.

In this webinar, we will cover the following topics:

  • Why use R for spatial analysis
  • Packages for spatial data analysis
  • Types of spatial data
  • Classes and methods in R for spatial data analysis
  • Importing and exporting spatial data
  • Visualizing spatial data in R
