GIS and Remote Sensing analyses with R (GARM01)

21 October 2019 - 25 October 2019


Course Overview:

The course will cover the basics to perform spatial analyses using R as a Geographical Information System (GIS) platform and Remote Sensing as main data source. The course will provide a brief theoretical background of GIS tools and Remote Sensing data and techniques. By the end of this 5-day practical course, attendees will have the capacity to search satellite imagery, to manipulate Remote Sensing data, to create new variables, as well as to choose the best spatial tools and techniques to perform spatial analyses and interpret their results.

The course will be mainly practical, with some theoretical lectures. All modelling processes and calculations will be performed with R, the free software environment for statistical computing and graphics (http://www.r-project.org/). Attendees will learn to use the Rpackage RSToolbox for Remote Sensing image processing and analysis such as calculating spectral indices, principal component transformation, or unsupervised and supervised classification.

Intended Audience

This course is orientated to PhD and MSc students, as well as other students and researchers working on biogeography, spatial ecology, or related disciplines.
