Software Carpentry: Intermediate R

September 29, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - September 30, 2021 @ 3:00 pm

The Geospatial Centroid and CSU Libraries are once again partnering with NASA DEVELOP to provide Software Carpentry workshops to CSU affiliates.

Introductory and Intermediate training sessions for Python and R will be held September 27 – 30, 2021, and presented remotely. Sessions run concurrently, so you may only register for one series. There are limited seats available for CSU affiliates.


If you have any further questions about the content of the workshops, feel free to email Dan Carver, Technical Manager, Geospatial Centroid (dan.carver@colostate.edu).

R and Python courses will be run currently so you can only select a single course.



Intermediate R:  Sept 29 – Sept 30, 1pm – 3pm

Note: This lesson is designed to teach R coders how to apply their skills to geospatial concepts. It
assumes an intermediate level of R knowledge. If you are unfamiliar with the concepts listed in the
Introductory course, we recommend you enroll in the intro-level course.

This course will approach the following question:

Can we use VIIRS day/night band imagery to predict socio-economic conditions at the census tract level
for three different counties in Texas?
Concepts covered:

  • Reading and visualizing rasters
  • Creating temporary objects
  • Reprojecting data
  • Processing and analyzing geospatial and census data
  • Utilizing the sf, raster, tmap, and tidy census packages
  • Writing efficient workflows
