Feel free to download and share the courses. You are welcome to use them for your own teaching, and I would love to hear about it. If you would like me to come and teach one of these courses at your institution, then get in touch.

Many people don't realise that the R programming language can work as a fully functioning GIS. It has several powerful advantages over many other GIS programs: you can program scripts for complete automation, it is relatively fast, and it is free.

The downside is that it is not easy to get started, particularly if you are not simultaneously a geo-statistical expert and a gun programmer. I am trying to make the jump easier for ecologists by providing courses and helpful blog posts here.

More code (including this webpage) is on my Github page.

Rstats Blog

This is my blog for programming in R-stats (and occasionally other languages). I am interested in mapping, GIS, simulation modelling, statistics, optimization and visualisation, mainly for the biological sciences, but many of the applications are general.
