Workshops: Geographical data and parallel computing with R (March 8) and Python (March 9)
March 8, 2016 @ 12:00 am - March 9, 2016 @ 12:00 am
These workshops will provide an overview of working with geospatial data and the steps necessary to turn a set of census data shapefiles into to a map viewable via a web browser. In addition, we will present an overview of parallel computing, and a demonstration of how to reduce execution time via parallel processing on the Flux cluster. Examples will be shown using Python and R on separate days. Each day will be self-contained.
This workshop is intended for those interested in an introduction to geospatial data analysis and/or to parallel computing. Familiarity with R, Python and similar software will help in understanding the workshop, but is not necessary to attend.
For a preview of what we will do, see http://demographics.
- R workshop: Tue, Mar 8, 2016, 2-5 p.m.
- Python workshop: Wed, Mar 9, 2016, 2-5 p.m.
Both sessions will be in the Earl Lewis Room, Third Floor, Rackham Building These workshops are jointly presented by the Clark Library, CSCAR, and ARC-TS. For more information, send e-mail to: parallel-geodata-workshop@
