Target group

• Master
• PhD

This course will be useful for those who work with spatial data across a variety of fields. This course will suit anyone who is looking to learn about modelling and visualising their spatial data as well as those who would like to refresh what they have learned before. No prior knowledge of spatial statistics is required.

Course aim

After this course you are able to:
• Load spatial datasets into R and produce exploratory visualisations and summaries.
• Identify spatial trends and autocorrelation.
• Distinguish between areal unit and geostatistical data and apply corresponding methodology appropriately.
• Interpret R output and produce high quality visualisations of results.
