Keynote talk at SatRdays Newcastle

Geocomputation with R: Reproducible Geo* workflows, from getting data to making maps

This talk will introduce Geocomputation with R, a new book on R for geographic data. It will demonstrate how far R has evolved as an environment for geographic data analysis and visualisation, and provide a taster of what is in the book and, more importantly, what is possible when ‘data science’ and ‘GIS’ meet. With new packages such as sf, geographic data analysis has become more accessible. The talk will show how geographic analysis can bring local examples to life.
