Visualizing spatial data with R

Dr. Martijn Tennekes, Statistics Netherlands (Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek)

METECH Group & the Migration Group are happy to invite you to the online workshop on Visualizing spatial data with R. In this workshop you will learn how to plot spatial data in R by using the tmap package. This package is an implementation of the grammar of graphics for thematic maps, and resembles the syntax of ggplot2. This package is useful for both explorationand publication of spatial data, and offers both static and interactive plotting.


Please install the tmap package in your Rstudio before the workshop. For instructions on how to do this and more information about the workshop, you can visit Martijn's github.

We kindly ask you to confirm your attendance by adding your name in this list.
