Overview: In recent years, the usage of Spatial Analyses for Ecology has increased tremendously. Open source platforms such as QGIS and R have contributed to an increase in the usage of tools for such analyses. In this workshop, we will be using the programming environment in R to carry out spatial analyses. Topics covered include basic spatial operations and storage of data, vector and raster manipulation, packages and functions that offer tools analogous to ones offered in QGIS/ArcGIS and basics of static mapping. Basic knowledge of R and ArcGIS/QGIS is required. (Optional: Participants are encouraged to bring their own spatial datasets and manipulate them during the workshop).

Intended Audience: Students / Professionals (Beginner to Intermediate user in R)
