9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Instructors: Darya Vanichkina, Maryam Montazerolghaem
This course, run by the Sydney Informatics Hub, will use the Data Carpentry Geospatial curriculum. It will focus on teaching researchers to use geospatial data for their own analyses in the R programming language.
The Sydney Informatics Hub is a Core Research Facility of the University of Sydney. SIH provides support, training, and expertise on research data, analyses and computing for research staff, students and affiliates of the University. We deliver policies, systems, advice, engineering and training to research staff, students and affiliates of the University.
Who: The course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. Attendees MUST be from the University of Sydney or one of its affiliate institutes.
Participants need to have a working knowledge of R, including basic familiarity with the tidyverse package. NO previous experience with geospatial data is required.
When: Dec 10th - 11th - 2018. Add to your Google Calendar.
Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should have a few specific software packages installed (listed below).
