GeoData and Spatial Data Analysis with R

The workshop will take place on July 30th, 10:00 AM CEST on Zoom

Course Details

The workshop will introduce R package sf for handling spatial data in tables, and operating on them using spatial measures, predicates and transformers. It will exemplify the operations in practical use cases. It will also give an outlook to handling dynamic data, often handled in the form of raster or vector data cubes, using R package stars. A superset of the material presented during the workshop is found in the online book freely available at
