Contents Notes
1. Introduction -- 2. Data and plots -- 3. Basics of handling spatial data in R -- 4. Scripting and writing function in R -- 5. Using R as a GIS -- 6. Point pattern analysis using R -- 7. Spatial attribute analysis with R -- 8. Localised spatial analysis -- 9. R and internet data -- 10. Epilogue -- Index. This is a new edition of the accessible and student-friendly 'how to' for anyone using R for the first time, for use in spatial statistical analysis, geocomputation and digital mapping. The authors, once again, take readers from 'zero to hero', updating the now standard text to further enable practical R applications in GIS, spatial analyses, spatial statistics, web-scraping and more. The new edition includes detailed discussion of new and emerging packages within R like sf, ggplot, tmap, making it the go to introduction for all researchers collecting and using data with location attached. This is the introduction to the use of R for spatial statistical analysis, geocomputation, and GIS for all researchers -- regardless of discipline -- collecting and using data with location attached.
