The Carpentries are excited to announce the first release of the long-awaited Data Carpentry curriculum for working with Geospatial data which is now ready to be used in teaching. As all newly developed curricula are ‘beta’, The Carpentries are actively promoting and organising pilot workshops and collecting feedback to improve these lessons.

So what’s in the material?

This R-based geospatial workshop will introduce project organisation and management for spatial data, cover data structures and storage and transfer formats, teach the creation of summary statistics and publication-quality graphics, and help users work with and plot vector and raster-format spatial data in R.

Interested in teaching this material?

The Carpentries will be onboarding Instructors to prepare them to teach these new lessons. Sign up for onboarding.

You can find out more information at the Geospatial Workshop Overview.
