This two-day workshop, taught at the USGS National Training Center in Denver, CO on 12-13 April 2016, will cover working with spatio-temporal data in R.

This workshop will present how to work with Lidar Data derived rasters in R. Learn how to import rasters into R. Learn associated key metadata attributed needed to work with raster formats. Analyzing the data performing basic raster math to create a canopy height model. Export raster results as a (spatially located) GeoTIFF.

This tutorial explains the fundamental principles, functions and metadata that you need to work with raster data, in image format, in R. Topics include raster stacks, raster bricks, plotting RGB images and exporting an RGB image to a GeoTIFF.

This tutorial walks you through creating square polygons from a plot centroid (x,y format) in R.

Learn to extract data from a raster using circular or square buffers created around a x,y location or from a shapefile. With this will will learn to convert x,y locations in a .csv file into a SpatialPointsDataFrame so that they can be
