GSN INDIBANO: Integrating R functions with QGIS
A one day training course on working with Geospatial data in R and QGIS was lead by Hayden Wilson and Bonolo Mokatsi at the 2019 SAEON Graduate Student Network. The data for the students to use during training was sourced data from the SAEON Open Data Platform.
The Geospatial Workshop started off by providing the students with an introduction to Geospatial Data Models and explaining the way that Geospatial Data is handled in R.
The Course then went on to provide students with an introduction to importing data into R, displaying the data and querying metadata and the attribute tables of the spatial data.
The students worked through an example, where they investigated the fire frequency within the different vegetation classes within the Kruger National Park.
