Objective: Spatial and spatio-temporal data classes and methods in R / Importing and analyzing remote sensing data in R
General description: Basic design of the sp and spacetime classes will be introduced and reviewed and how can these be visualized in Google Earth by using the plotKML package. This is a general introduction to modelling spatio-temporal features and processes within R for the purpose of analysis and visualization. The spacetime classes will be addressed in more detail in this block. See also: "Spatial and spacetime classes in R" by Roger Bivand.
