FOSS4G Europe 2024 workshops

Let's combine GRASS, Python and R: Satellite time series data for species distribution modeling
07-01, 14:00–18:00 (Europe/Tallinn), Room 301

In this workshop, we will explore the combined use of GRASS GIS, Python and R in a workflow of species distribution modeling (SDM). We will use a time series of satellite land surface temperature data to derive relevant predictors. The satellite data processing will be performed using GRASS GIS software functionality within a JupyterLab environment, taking advantage of the latest GRASS GIS Python features for Jupyter. Then, we’ll read our predictors within R and perform SDM, visualize and analyze results there. Finally, we'll exemplify how to write the output distribution maps back into GRASS for further analysis.
