The R workshop series will introduce participants to the fundamentals of using the R programming language and associated tools for the purposes of performing common data analysis tasks. The R programming language is 100% free to use and is extremely popular amongst researchers in both academia, business, and non-profits. It is especially useful for conducting statistical analysis.

This series consists of four workshops. Individuals are encouraged to attend (or watch the recording) for the “R 1: Getting Started…” workshop first; especially for individuals who are brand new to using R. The content for the remaining workshops are independent of each other and can be attended in any order.

While these workshops are taught exclusively using code (i.e. there are no point-and-click methods), attendees do not need to have any prior experience with programming, coding, or scripting. All are welcome.

Workshop Topics:

-- Creating statistical plots using ggplot2

-- Customizing plot colors, themes, labels, etc…

-- Working with GIS data to create maps

-- Modifying maps with overlays, custom aesthetics, and additional data

Prerequisites: None.
