Integrating geospatial data science and traditional cartographic methods is in demand for modern geospatial analysts. In an age of flourishing data products, having a working proficiency with QGIS and R is an added advantage to every analyst.

This course introduces you to the full workflow, ranging from acquiring data, data wrangling, and analysis to outputting and publishing visualization products. We touch on a variety of datasets (including remote-sensing data and techniques) and incorporate machine learning in QGIS analytical steps. We further investigate geospatial analysis using the most up-to-date R packages, such as ggplot2, raster, sf, Leaflet, and Shiny.

By the end of the course, you will be able to produce interactive maps and professional cartographic products, deploy them as a Shiny application, and critique a variety of end-results.
