Advanced Courses offered at Orbital Geospatial College

R programming is a free, open-source language for statistical computing and data visualization. Statisticians use it for everything from exploratory analysis, and data mining to graphing. GIS users are leveraging its capabilities for much more specialized types of statistical analysis and data manipulation. ArcGIS and Q-GIS are mostly Python-based, and both have extensions to work with R. This course will teach you the basics of how to integrate R programming with GIS. Furthermore, we will discuss how to use R and GIS together to help with data collection, data processing, and modeling.
