Software installation Scripting in R Do’s and don’ts R code editors Working with spatial data Spatial classes Spatial methods R+SAGA R+FWTools Export to Google Earth Literature Crash course A“crash course”is a compressed version of a training course for people that already have full agendas. It is really intended for people who pick up new methods/tools quickly and have a high motivation to learn (PhD students?). This means no long questions, no going back, no long discussion, no complains about the speed/programme of the course. . . and of course: no promises that you will manage to learn R in such a short time.

Software installation Scripting in R Do’s and don’ts R code editors Working with spatial data Spatial classes Spatial methods R+SAGA R+FWTools Export to Google Earth Literature Getting the right motivation (inspiration) What is R, and why should you invest time to learn it? What can it do? (and what it can’t do?) How does the R community works (what are its shared principles)? Is R suited for spatio-temporal data analysis?

  • 27. R crash course T. Hengl & R.S. Bivand Overview Course programme Why R? Software installation Scripting in R Do’s and don’ts R code editors Working with spatial data Spatial classes Spatial methods R+SAGA R+FWTools Export to Google Earth Literature Why make scripts? It’s easy to use: “Because S (and its implementation R) is a well-developed, simple and effective programming language which includes conditionals, loops, user-defined recursive functions and input and output facilities, existing functions can be modified.” In R we all become programmers (but much faster than with C++ or Java). The basic approach to using R is to generate scripts that define the data processing steps (workflows?). Documenting the analysis process is a“good thing”, so programming scripts are not just a burden, certainly for users doing original research and repetitive work, arguably for student classes too. Point-and-click operations are for amateurs.

Software installation Scripting in R Do’s and don’ts R code editors Working with spatial data Spatial classes Spatial methods R+SAGA R+FWTools Export to Google Earth Literature Do you speak R? After some time you basically discovered that most of the things you want to do, you can do in R, the only question is how. Well, first, you have to learn to how to speak’n’write R.

Software installation Scripting in R Do’s and don’ts R code editors Working with spatial data Spatial classes Spatial methods R+SAGA R+FWTools Export to Google Earth Literature Why NOT Matlab? R and Matlab are in fact very similar, except. . . : (almost) everything you do in Matlab, you can do in R; R can be used to write homework (for Matlab you need a computer lab with software licences); “R gradually pushes people towards better programming habits”(Tam´as K. Papp); Matlab has a limited support for processing spatial data (R is better); Contributed packages in R are growing faster (R is better); We are in academia — we shouldn’t be developing toolboxes for some private company but for the people (and for ourselves);

Software installation Scripting in R Do’s and don’ts R code editors Working with spatial data Spatial classes Spatial methods R+SAGA R+FWTools Export to Google Earth Literature A bit of history R was first time released in 1997; majority of the development is (still) done by prof. Brian D. Ripley; a the moment (juni 19 2010 10:01), there are 2387 contributed packages! according to Google trends, R-project.org has a community of about 200–350k active users; in 2003, a group of researchers (International Workshop on Distributed Statistical Computing) decided to add Spatial functionality to R; . . . now is time to use it more broadly (MSc level and PhD level modules, projects, reports and scientific documents);

Software installation Scripting in R Do’s and don’ts R code editors Working with spatial data Spatial classes Spatial methods R+SAGA R+FWTools Export to Google Earth Literature Good practice Put comments in script (after #). Add some meta-information at the beginning of your script. Once you tested your script and saw that it works, tidy-up the code. Place the input data on-line (database) so you can communicate only the script.

Do’s: If you have not done so already, read the R posting guide. Use the existing pre-installed data sets (come together with a certain package) to describe your problem; link your problem to some existing problems. Acknowledge the work (time spent) other people do to help you. You can submit not only the problems you discover but also the information that you think is interesting for the community. Don’ts: Do not send poorly formulated questions. Do not send too much. Complaining to a mailing list about what frustrates you about R makes no sense. You are requesting that somebody does a work for you that you could do yourself!

Software installation Scripting in R Do’s and don’ts R code editors Working with spatial data Spatial classes Spatial methods R+SAGA R+FWTools Export to Google Earth Literature Spatial objects An advantage of R (as compared to e.g. Matlab) is that you can create your own formats and structures for data. But if there are too many formats you can easily get lots. In addition, we want to have smooth links to external formats (R is open!). To reduce this problem, Bivand et al. (2008) developed new-style classes to represent spatial data.

The most basic spatial data object is a point, which may have 2 or 3 dimensions.

These objects are very similar to typical representations of the same kinds of objects in geographical information systems, so they do not suit spatial data that is not geographical (like medical imaging) as such. Because now sp classes for GIS data exits, this opens the door for fusing GIS and statistical operations (this has not been possible in e.g. 2002).
