FOSS4G 2022 workshops

Jakub Nowosad

I am a computational geographer working at the intersection between geocomputation and the environmental sciences. My research is focused on developing and applying spatial methods to broaden our understanding of processes and patterns in the environment. Vital part of my work is to create, collaborate, and improve geocomputational software. I am an active member of the #rspatial community and a co-author of the Geocomputation with R book.


Getting started with R and R-spatial
Jakub Nowosad, Nicolas Roelandt

R is an open-source language and a major player in the field of data science.
The R spatial ecosystem is very rich and provides tried and tested tools for working with spatial vector or raster data.
This workshop will introduce R and its package for handling spatial data.
