Introduction to GIS and spatial analysis with R (GISR01)
This course will interest anyone working with marine mammal spatial data.

https://www.prstatistics.com/course/introduction-to-gis-and-spatial-analysis-with-r-gisr01/

This course will be delivered by Luca Nelli from the 22nd - 26th of April
in Glasgow City Centre

Course overview:
This course aims at providing audience with the essential tools for working
with spatially explicit data within the statistical environment R, with
particular reference to ecological applications (e.g. species distribution
models, resources and habitat selection, home range analyses…).
Practical sessions will primarily use the free statistical software, R –
prior experience (even if some practice before you come) will be useful.
Example data will be provided but participants may also bring their own
data.
