Hands-On Geospatial Analysis with R and QGIS 3.4

Video Description

Integrate the best of both worlds: GIS and R programming

About This Video

  • Gain multi-disciplinary geospatial and application-development skills that are applicable to research, GIS consultants, data analysts, environmental services, and cartography companies.
  • Bridge the gap between GIS and programming languages to maximize the capacities of your geospatial workflow.
  • Use the most up-to-date and popular suite of software/packages for modern programming and best coding practices

In Detail

Integrating geospatial data science and traditional cartographic methods is in demand for modern geospatial analysts. In an age of flourishing data products, having a working proficiency with QGIS and R is an added advantage to every analyst.

This course introduces you to the full workflow, ranging from acquiring data, data wrangling, and analysis to outputting and publishing visualization products. We touch on a variety of datasets (including remote-sensing data and techniques) and incorporate machine learning in QGIS analytical steps. We further investigate geospatial analysis using the most up-to-date R packages, such as ggplot2, raster, sf, Leaflet, and Shiny.

By the end of the course, you will be able to produce interactive maps and professional cartographic products, deploy them as a Shiny application, and critique a variety of end-results.
