Open Source in GIS conference

Before coming across R I never thought I’d manipulate spatial data. I started my R journey intending to analyze my thesis survey and discovered a plethora of analytic possibilities, one of them being spatial data. After fiddling around and creating some simple maps, I realized I had to dig deeper into R’s spatial capabilities.

In this talk I outline my journey of learning how to work with spatial data from a former blog post of mine. I outline my motivations to learning and the project itself: From data collection, data cleaning, and spatial manipulations to presenting the findings. Lastly, I discuss how this all relates to Open Source as an eco-system that enabled me to go on this adventure.
