LIDA Seminar Series 17th February 2020

This 1 day course offers an introduction to spatial analytics in a public health context. As spatial data sets get larger, more sophisticated software needs to be harnessed for their analysis. R is now a widely used open source software platform for statistical analysis and is increasingly popular for those working with spatial data thanks to its powerful analysis and visualisation packages. This course introduces the basics of how R can be used for spatial data. The course will begin with an overview of different spatial units and how they fit together. Public health examples will be used to illustrate the relevance of using each of these units. You will work through examples of how spatial units can be added into existing data sets. In the afternoon you will generate your first map using public health data.
