The aim: This introductory course provides students with a diverse set of skills of spatial analysis in R environment. The aim for students is to understand and explore the benefits of using a non GUI approach for spatial analytics and statistics, based on the standard approaches in R & RStudio.

Learning outcomes:
After completing the course student

knows basic concepts, skills, and tools for working with the R scripting environment;
is familiar with set of of practical R libraries for everyday scientific and professional GIS use;
is able to solve common data-related tasks using R in concrete GIS (Geographic Information System) projects;
is competent of using spatial and non-spatial data in order to answer a research question;
knows how to conduct and automate different standard GIS related tasks that support clear documentation of methods in the R scripting environment;

These lessons assume no prior knowledge of the skills or tools. It is a hands-on teaching course, so the majority of this course will be independent work in front of a computer and working on exercises.
