Objective: To learn methods of raster data manipulation and analysis with R tools
General description: Import, project, reformatting, aggregate, overlay, reclassify, and export of spatial data. The use of the "raster" package in R will be the focus of this session which will include many examples of R code in showing how spatial operations are performed. The students will spend substantial time during the morning session implementing R scripts for learning raster analysis.
Required back-ground knowledge: some knowledge of R
Software / R packages required: raster, sp, spacetime, dismo, rgdal;
