THIS WORKSHOP HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO MONDAY, FEBRUARY 8. This workshop introduces the use of the R language for producing maps. We will demonstrate the advantages of a code-drive approach such as R for visualizing geospatial data. Participants will gain the skills to quickly and efficiently create a variety of map types for a website, presentation, or publication. In addition to working on hands-on coding exercises, we will also review practical guidance on designing effective maps.
Bulding on knowledge from earlier Rfun workshops, learn basic text mining techniques with RStudio and critical packages. Attendees will analyze public domain novels by Jane Austen, wrangle text-data into submission, tokenize corpi, generate word clouds, and be introduced to introductory sentiment analysis.
Part of the DataFest Workshop Series. R markdown is a means of applying structure to the prose in your coding document. Using R Markdown and the xaringan package, attendees will integrate code with natural language (i.e. prose) to render presentation slides as a reproducible report. The method of integrating code with prose is known as literate coding. Attendees will focus their energies on rendering slides as one type of report while being introduced to an array of report types that can be generated from the same code.
