Short GIS Courses in QGIS, RStudio and Confident Spatial Analysis
Clear Mapping Co are pleased to offer you 3 one day courses jointly organised by the Administrative Data Research Centre for England (ADRC-E) and Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC). We are running these courses at UCL, London and they can be attended individually or all 3 days together.
Introduction to QGIS: Understanding and Presenting Spatial Data
Wed 19 July 2017 - http://bit.ly/2qMrm2q
This course will introduce spatial data and show you how to import and display spatial data with the free open source GIS program QGIS. We will also show you how to create choropleth maps, explain appropriate methods of visualising spatial data and discuss some basic spatial data analysis (e.g. calculating rates).
Introduction to Spatial Data & Using R as a GIS
Thurs 20 July 2017 - http://bit.ly/2hNq57p
The course will cover an introduction to R, how to load and manage spatial data and how to create maps using R and RStudio. We will show you appropriate ways of using classifications for choropleth maps, using loops in R to create multiple maps and some basic spatial analysis.
Confident Spatial Analysis
Fri 21 July 2017 - http://bit.ly/2hNhBNy
In this course we will cover how to prepare and analyse spatial data in RStudio & GeoDa. We will use RStudio to perform spatial overlay techniques (such as union, intersection and buffers) to combine different spatial data layers to support a spatial analysis decision. We will also use RStudio and GeoDa to explore a range of different spatial analyses including spatial autocorrelation, Moran’s I and clustering.
