R Cafe

Do you want to enhance your R skills, meet other R programmers or ask questions related to R? Take your laptop with you and come to the R Cafe!

During this informal meetup, we will help each other with R programming, data handling and cleaning challenges. If you don’t have an issue, you are also welcome at the R Cafe, just to work on your code, or do learning exercises we prepared for you. 

Showcase: Forget about ArcGIS (starts at 15:30, 20min) 

Maps and geographic information are part of many research projects. To work with geographical information, you can use free software like QGIS or commercial software like ArcGIS. But, would it be nice to do this with R? Nowadays, a collection of R packages makes it simple to work with maps and geographic information. In this demonstration, we discuss and show the Simple Features (sf) package.  

The demonstration will be brief (20 minutes), with room for all your individual questions afterwards.
