The UF Carpentries Club is piloting a brand new Data Carpentry Workshop on Geospatial Analysis in R. This new curriculum is focused on importing, analyzing, and visualization vector- and raster-format spatial data in the free, open-source program R. Have you ever needed to make maps but don’t have access to expensive proprietary software? Are you looking for a more reproducible approach to working with geospatial data? Come learn with us, and contribute to this new (and open) education resource.

There will be a two day workshop on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 23-24, 2018, hosted at the offices of Informatics Institute and Biodiversity Institute in the CSE Building.

Seats are limited to 24 and there is a $46 registration fee, payable by credit card, which will include lunch on both days. Please let us know if you need a vegetarian, gluten-free, or vegan meal on the registration form.
