Introduction to geospatial data analysis in R

Overview of tools available for georeferenced data analysis

Support of a workshop (4h) given as part of the 2019 joint annual meeting of the Canadian Society for Ecology and Evolution (CSEE), the Entomological Society of Canada (ESC) and the Acadian Entomological Society (AES). This workshop took place on August 18, 2019 in Fredericton, Canada. A french version of this support is also referenced on Rzine.

Workshop Objectives

  • Familiarize yourself with the main packages allowing simple processing and visualization of vector (sf) and raster (stars) data in R.
  • Perform common data transformations using the functions of these packages.
  • Know some packages that allow more complex visualizations: ggplot2 for static maps and mapview for interactive maps.
