Data/GIS: Making R Worth the Price

Presenter: Ryan Denniston

The basic version of the R programming language provides a powerful tool for data analysis, but much of the value in R lies in the wide range of libraries that extend its basic functionality. This workshop shares a number of popular extensions to R that enable rich graphics (ggplot, google graphics), file conversions, and additional statistical tests. A basic familiarity to R would be useful for this workshop.
