This event will comprise a talk by Robin Lovelace from 16:30-17:30 to introduce the newly-published Geocomputation with R, a book on R for geographic data by Lovelace, Jakub Nowosad and Jannes Muenchow. Aimed at people new to the subject, this book shows the power of programming with open source software for high-performance, reproducible mapping and geographic analysis. Robin’s talk will focus on visualisation, which is key to using data to understand the world, and provide some pointers for people wanting to get stuck in and use geocomputation to better understand the world, influence policy – or just have fun with maps! The talk will be followed by drinks and canapes in the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics, where you will have the opportunity to talk to Robin about the book.
