DataFest Workshop Series - Visualization in R using ggplot2

Wed, 2020-03-18 21:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

NOTE:  Bring your laptop.  The Edge Workshop Room does not provide computers.

Data science skills are increasingly important for research and industry projects.  With complex data science projects, however, come complex needs for understanding and communicating analysis processes and results.  Ultimately, an analyst's data science toolbox is incomplete without visualization skills.  Incorporating effective visualizations directly into the analysis tool you are using can facilitate quick data exploration, streamline your research process, and improve the reproducibility of your research.

In this workshop we will focus on ggplot2, a library for R that creates clear and well-designed visualizations and that plays well with other tidyverse packages. While prior experience with ggplot2 and with other tidyverse packages is not required, some basic familiarity with R is expected.  Please consider attending (or viewing a recording of) our Introduction to R workshop before attending this workshop on ggplot2.

In this workshop, we will use RStudio and RMarkdown files for all exercises. This room does not have computers, so you will need to bring your own laptop. Please make sure you come with RStudio and the tidyverse package installed.  You may also want to install the knitr package to be able to compile the entire Rmarkdown file. Workshop materials are available if you would like to review them in advance.

Please note: this classroom has a limited number of seats. If you choose to register for the workshop, please make every effort to attend, or if you cannot, please cancel your registration as soon as a conflict comes up. If all spots fill up, we will maintain a waitlist in the event of cancelations.  In addition, a previous version of this workshop has been recorded, and the associated files are available on GitHub. If you can't attend but would like to be notified when a recording is available, please contact Angela Zoss.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience  participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.

Data Science Tools Showcase: Spatial Analysis with R and Python

Thu, 2020-02-20 20:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Some people who want to do spatial (geographic) analysis don’t know ArcPro or QGIS, but do know R or Python. In this workshop, we will present a command-line, or code-driven, approach to working with geospatial data. This method offers several advantages over traditional GIS software that can make your work easier, faster, and more reproducible!

We will share a showcase of spatial data science workflows that demonstrate the possibilities opened up by tools available from the command-line and scripting for processing, analyzing and visualizing data. 

This workshop would be helpful for participants with some GIS experience who want to expand their data science toolkit, or for those who currently use R and/or Python and are curious about the geospatial capabilities of these languages. 

Some basic familiarity with programming in R and/or Python will make this workshop more useful. We encourage anyone without this background to attend (or watch a recording of) our Introduction to R or Python for Data Science workshops.

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience  participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent. If you are uncomfortable with a recording being published please contact the instructor at anytime prior to the conclusion of the workshop.

Spatial Analysis with R

Wed, 2020-02-19 18:00
Bostock 127 (The Edge Workshop Room)
West Campus

Do you already use R and want to learn more about working with geospatial data? You don’t necessarily need GIS software. Often you can analyze your data and make maps entirely in R. 

In this workshop we will introduce methods for processing and analyzing geospatial data in R. We will talk about how different types of spatial data work in R, walk though common spatial data operations such joins, and perform basic spatial analysis. 

This workshop is a companion to Mapping in R, which focus on visualization more than analysis. 

We assume participants will have some familiarity with R and RStudio. If you are brand new to R, we suggest attending (or watching a recording of) our Intro to R workshop first. Basic knowledge of GIS concepts is helpful. 

Please bring a laptop to follow along with the tutorials. 

The content of the workshop may be recorded. Cameras will capture the instructor station and the display screen. Ambient audio, including verbal audience  participation, will be included on the recording. Registration for the workshop indicates consent.
