Intro to Vector Data in R

6 part series
Creation supported by NEON, Data Carpentry, SESYNC, and iPlant Collaborative
The data tutorials in this series cover how to open, work with and plot with vector-format spatial data (points, lines and polygons) in R. Additional, topics include working with spatial metadata (extent and coordinate reference system), working with spatial attributes and plotting data by attributes.

Introduction to Working with Raster Data in R

8 part series
Creation supported by NEON, Data Carpentry, SESYNC, and iPlant Collaborative
A series of data tutorials that teach you how to open, plot and perform basic calculations on raster data in R. It also covers key spatial attributes associated with raster data include extent, projection and resolution. Finally we cover dealing with missing and bad data when working with remote sensing imagery.
