UCGIS Partners to Offer Discounts on Spatial Statistics & Mapping with R Classes

Looking for some targeted professional development to enhance your mapping and spatial analysis skills with R?  Consider upcoming summer 2021 sessions of Spatial Statistics for GIS Using R (https://www.statistics.com/courses/spatial-statistics-for-gis-using-r/) or Mapping in R (https://www.statistics.com/courses/mapping-in-r/). Each of these 4-week-long online courses is taught by well-known and familiar experts from within our own GIScience community. Starting now: the classes are available to individuals from UCGIS member institutions each at a $150 discount (25% off the $589 per class price). 

Since the early 2000s, The Institute for Statistics Education (statistics.com) has been known for providing solid, rigorous short courses on a wide range of statistics and data science topics.  Their classes have always been offered online (asynchronous), with three main elements: weekly lessons with assigned readings, a private discussion board for students & the instructor, and homework assignments that will receive instructor feedback. Plus, these courses are eligible for CEU and other credit options (see the website for details).

Mapping in R next runs from June 4 – July 2, 2021.  Christopher Brunsdon, Professor of Geocomputation at Ireland’s Maynooth University, has led this course since 2013.  His reputation in this field is prominent and global, with book publications including An Introduction to R for Spatial Analysis and Mapping (2014, authored with Lex Comber) and Geocomputation: a Practical Primer (2015, authored with Alex Singleton).

The next instance of Spatial Statistics for GIS Using R will take place July 9 – August 6, 2021.  David Unwin (Professor Emeritus at Birkbeck College, University of London) is the instructor for Spatial Statistics, a class he has been leading on this platform since 2005. His expertise in this field and as an educator is award-winning, and many continue to rely on his publications (such as Geographic Information Analysis, 2nd edition 2010, co-authored with David O’Sullivan) as key teaching and learning resources.

Each of these classes is offered only once or twice a year, so don’t pass on this opportunity. To access the discounted registration price directly, use the UCGIS promo code that your university's UCGIS representatives can give you, or contact Diana Sinton.
