Mapping and spatial analyses in R for One Health studies

GeoHealth Training Series

This training is designed for people interested in using R for mapping and spatial analysis for applications in the various fields related to “one health” approaches. R is an open source software widely used by the scientific community for data analysis and which is becoming an interesting choice for cartography and spatial analysis, as a Geographic Information System.

This training was first prepared to be given from 28th November to 2nd December 2022, in Phnom Penh Cambodia, by the GeoHealth team under the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD) and the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC), in the frame of:

  • the OHSEA Project (One Health in Practices in South-East Asia), funded by the FSPI (Solidarity Fund for Innovative Projects) under the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs,
  • the Dissemination activities of the EASIMES (Environment Analysis and Surveillance to Improve Malaria Elimination Strategy) Project funded by the Global Fund RAI2E.

Conception: It was first designed from the courses “Géomatique avec R” and “Cartographie avec R” by Timothée Giraud and Hugues Pecout. It was then translated and its examples were adapted for Cambodia and health applications.
