Basic R Programming for Data Analysis

9:30am to 12:00pm

Location: 

CGIS Knafel K018
This hands-on, intermediate course will guide you through a variety of programming functions in the open-source statistical software program, R. It is intended for those already comfortable with using R for data analysis who wish to move on to writing their own functions. To the extent possible this workshop uses real-world examples. Concepts will be introduced as they are needed for a realistic analysis task. In the course of working through a realistic project we will lean about interacting with web services, regular expressions, iteration, functions, control flow and more. Prerequisite:...

Database Design for GPS/GIS Applications

1:00pm to 3:00pm

LOCATION: Room B-127, The Northwest Building, 52 Oxford St., Cambridge, MA Database design is a key step in GIS data modeling. GIS data modeling is the process of representing specific aspects of the real world in a computer. This workshop gives an introduction to GIS data modeling and the 3 phases of database design: requirements analysis, schema refinement, and physical database design. It also covers specific design considerations when capturing data for GIS applications using GPS. Students will design a Geodatabase for use in ArcPad on the Trimble GeoXT.
