In this presentation, Tina Cormier, will explore vector GIS, raster processing, lidar data, and cartography with R, an open source software environment and programming language that is well-positioned to have an impact in the rapidly emerging field of geospatial data science.

Widely used among academics, scientists, and data science practitioners, R is a flexible platform for both statistical computing and beautiful, fully customizable graphics.  A recent surge in the development of geospatial packages has enabled R to become a fully functional command line GIS as well.

Taking a case study on forest biomass mapping, Cormier will demonstrate the utility of R methods across the full range of the research process.
