Working with geospatial vector data in R

April 6, 2021 @ 17:30 - 20:30


Using geospatial vector data in R used to be quite challenging. Not anymore. Join our workshop to see how to import, process and display geospatial data. You might not even need a conventional GIS software any more…

At the end of this workshop you will be able to

  • import geospatial vector data from different sources and file formats
  • merging and intersecting geospatial objects
  • create buffers and spatial joins
  • calculate nearest neighbours
  • create nice-looking maps

Pre-requisites: “Introduction to Data Science with R”, McGill’s R Summer Camp or some other basic understanding of R code (preferably including piping).

This workshop will be hosted online on Zoom and takes about 2.5 to 3 hours. Registration is open until 1 hour before the workshops starts. You will receive the Zoom link for the workshop in time before the workshop starts. The instructor will be Tim Elrick.
