Geostatistics – Handling Spatial and Spatial-temporal data Using R (GSFE01)

18th November 2019 - 22nd November 2019

£560.00
Geostatistics – Handling Spatial and Spatial-temporal data Using R (GSFE01)

Event Date

Monday, November 18th, 2019

Course Format

This is a ‘LIVE COURSE’ – the instructor will be delivering lectures and coaching attendees through the accompanying computer practical’s via video link, a good internet connection is essential.

Course Program

TIME ZONE – UTC+2 – however all sessions will be recorded and made available allowing attendees from different time zones to follow a day behind with an additional 1/2 days support after the official course finish date (please email oliverhooker@prstatistics.com for full details or to discuss how we can accommodate you).

Course Details

This 5-day course will cover the concepts, methods, and R tools that can be used to analyse spatial and spatiotemporal data through Geostatistic. The course will review data processing techniques relevant to spatial and spatiotemporal data sets. Following, we will cover spatial interpolation methods such as inverse distance weighted interpolation as well as simple, ordinary and universal kriging, sequential Gaussian (co)simulation and sequential indicator (co)simulation. Through these different interpolation methods, we will learn about the different types of variograms and variogram models including directional and omnidirectional variograms. As advance topic, depending on time and interest, we will discuss about spatial modelling of stream networks using \texttt{SSN} and spatial and spatiotemporal modelling of large data using \texttt{INLA}.
