O01: Welcome to R

Welcome to our first Geotraining Module: Introduction to R. Today you will learn about the programming language R that is the basis for Module 1: Geospatial Technologies. We will use R to analyze remote sensing imagery, do statistics, build models and advance into machine learning. You already see: R can be used for a lot of things and it can be a bit overwhelming when you first start out. But do not worry, we start very slow with the very basics - so even if you never used R, you can follow along and get prepared the more advanced techniques later in the module.

This course consists of three major parts:

  1. Slides with the technical background and general information.
  2. Exercised and scripts as hands on practice for you.
  3. A video series that accompanies the slides and exercises with detailed explanations.
