This README file is associated with the Exploring Spatial Data with sf workshop on February 7, 2019 for BAE 590 (Spring 2019).

Workshop Data Set Download

You'll need to download and unzip the workshop data before coming to class. You can find the data here. If you know how to and have time to download this GitHub repo before coming to class, please move the spatial_data and tabular_data directories into the workshop_data directory associated with this GitHub repo. If you don't know how to do this, I'll walk through it at the start of class.

Check R and RStudio Versions

You will need to make sure that you have the latest version of R and RStudio installed on your computer. Please see the R website here and the RStudio website here to download the latest versions. Please do this before coming to class.

Update R Packages

Please make sure that all of your R packages are up-to-date. To do this open up RStudio and go to Tools > "Check for Package Updates..." and it will provide a list of package updates that are available. Please install these updates before coming to class.


You will get a link for the pre-class and post-class surveys. Please fill these out so I know what you're background knowledge is and what you learned during the workshop.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
