Geocomputation with R
Robin Lovelace, Jakub Nowosad, Jannes Muenchow
This is the online home of Geocomputation with R, a forthcoming book with CRC Press.
Inspired by bookdown and the Free and Open Source Software for Geospatial (FOSS4G) movement, this book is open source and publicly available. This approach encourages contributions, ensures reproducibility and provides access to the material worldwide.
The book explains how to undertake a range of geographic techniques from R and is divided into the floowing parts:
- Foundations, aimed at getting you up-to-speed with geographic data in R.
- Extensions, which covers advanced techniques.
- Applications, to real-world problems.
The version of the book you are reading now was built on 2018-08-16 and was built on Travis.
