Talk descriptions:

"Spatial Analysis with R"

Ben will share some recent work he did using R for spatial data visualization. He will discuss how to read shapefiles and rasters into R, how to join and process data related to those shapes, and how to generate dynamic animated map products.

"R Therapy"

Do you have a problem that you are trying to solve with R that you just can't get to work? A model you can't seem to specify? A graph you can't tweak? A dataset you can't tame? An interface you can't bridge? A bug you can't trap? Well, try some group theRapy.

Bring your laptop, problem, and/or dataset and we will try to tackle the problems you are having as a group. If there are multiple problems, we can break into smaller groups. Don't have any current unresolved problems of your own? Then maybe you can help someone else, or at least learn from their problems before they are yours.
