“Nick led reassuringly through the entire course. I was highly impressed by the systematic, hands on use of the course booklet. Like others on the course Nick had my full attention! I felt accomplished at the end of the course as I progressed from being able to read in .csv files, plot maps and customise various plot parameters, join various data types and re-project spatial data. The course was worth every effort, and I have no reservation whatsoever recommending it to anyone with interest in geospatial data analysis using R.” Esuene Samson (Formerly Institute of Geophysics & Tectonics, University of Leeds)


Introduction to QGIS

QGIS is a freeware Geographic Information System (GIS) programme which can help you unlock your own spatial data or combine with other Open Data to create functional maps. Learn how to import and manage spatial data and create maps for reports. During the course, we will cover how to use existing data such as postcodes, county or town boundaries, as well as how to create choropleth maps. A brilliant introduction course into GIS. Download PDF for more information.

Introduction to Using R as a GIS

Learn how to use R to import, manage and map spatial data. A reasonable understanding of any GIS is required. We will show you how to map existing Open Data using spatial information and help you understand how to create choropleth maps with this course. No previous knowledge of R or scripting is necessary, as will be learning step-by-step the tools you need to use this programme. Essential course for Big Data processing and mapping. Download PDF for more information.

Confident Spatial Analysis

Looking to develop your spatial analysis skills? This course will give you more confidence to use these skills in decision-making projects; using GIS analysis to support your proposals. Suggest that you have already completed the course in R, with us previously. Learn how to create functions within R and use scripting to be able to repeat analysis across different areas. Expand your knowledge for complex GIS tasks.
