Decembre 14, 2017: Geographical Information Systems

The aim of this session is to give a basic overview on how to work with spatial data with R.
The session will briefly cover :
  1. Spatial data types
  2. Main packages for spatial data handling
  3. Basic computations on spatial data
  4. Plotting spatial data with R
Then, we will shortly illustrate these points working on data from the Grenoble area.

After the main presentation, in a lightning talk , Simon Barthelmé will present his package imager for working with image data.

And then, as always, the second part of the session will be used to socialize, eat some canapés and drink some virgin mojito.
