To foster international participation, this course will be held online
Interactive maps, where users can zoom, pan, show/hide different layers of information, and toggle between different background maps, are invaluable communication and educational tools. They are
increasingly used and in high demand by organizations as the most efficient and powerful way of conveying spatial information and engaging the user. Participants in this course will learn how to
make and customize interactive maps, using external and/or own spatial data, and how to make these maps available and useable by collaborators or the public. The course is entirely based on free
and open-source R software, with packages like ‘leaflet’ and ‘mapview’. Classes will include some theoretical lectures, but mostly practical hands-on exercises. Participants will be given
annotated R scripts to create different types of interactive maps with provided data. They will then create their own interactive maps using their newly acquired data and skills.
This course is aimed at students, researchers and practitioners at any career stage with an interest in representing spatial information in interactive maps, and in making these maps available to their colleagues or to the public. Participants should have basic experience with R and with spatial data, although fully-functioning R scripts will be provided and explained. Package installation instructions will be sent to participants a few days before the course.
Daily schedule: 15:00 - 19:00 (Berlin time): live lectures and practicals
Support will be available through Slack until the end of the next day (Berlin time).
