Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this course will be held online
This course will provide an introduction to geocompuation and visualizing geographic data through a combination of lectures covering theoretical topics and hands-on exercises. We will only
slightly touch spatial analysis and mainly focus on what comes before that - what is spatial data and how to deal with it. From reading the data to making beautiful maps. The first three days
will cover an introduction to geocomputation, handling spatial data, as well as applying basic operations. The next two dates will focus on visualizing geodata with ggplot2 and other
This course is designed for researchers and graduate students with an interest in geocomputation. We will provide theoretical lectures and hands-on exercises.
The participants should have some basic background in R. During the workshop, we will work with the RStudio IDE.
