October 28 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Your Desktop

This is the fourth workshop about the fundamentals of GIS and spatial analysis this semester. Each workshop covers one or two key elements and is self-contained. The focus is on conceptual details that can provide sufficient preparation for applications, but we will also touch upon the technical aspects. Most workshops will have at least one hands-on exercise. Typically, each workshop is divided into one hour of lecture-style presentation and half an hour of hands-on exercises. Unless mentioned otherwise, we will use R and/or QGIS.

 

This workshop will focus on basic cartography principles for map-making and explore the functionalities of R and QGIS for making production-quality single- and bi-variate static and dynamic choropleth map. We will also explore the functionalities of leaflet, a powerful JavaScript library, to create web maps and add extra information via elements such as pop-ups.

 

Participants should have some familiarity with R, but exposure to QGIS is not required.
