This workshop will provide an introduction to the basics of data access and data navigation: discovering and accessing data via the NEON data portal, accessing data via the neonUtilities R package, understanding the content and quality of the data downloaded, and performing common data merges and transformations. Basic familiarity with R is recommended for participation in the workshop. To make the most of our time together, please see the software and R package installation instructions below under the heading 'Before the Workshop.'
The participants of the workshop will learn about the available datasets and tools to study ecological processes using NEON data. By the end of the workshop, participants will understand how they can use the suite of NEON data products to address their research questions. After attending the workshop, the attendees will be able to:
- Find, access, and interpret NEON data.
- Find additional resources to learn to work with the NEON data of their choice.
