Communicating with Data

Workshop Organised by the Monash Business Analytics Team (WOMBAT)

Wrangling spatio-temporal data with R

This tutorial is designed to get you up and running with multivariate spatio-temporal data analysis and visualisation in R quickly. It will cover importing and combining spatial and temporal data, filtering on space and time, aggregating on space and time, making basic maps and creating interactive plots.

H. Sherry Zhang is a third year PhD student in Econometrics and Business Statistics at Monash University. Her research focuses on multivariate spatiotemporal data wrangling and visualisation tools. She will be assisted by Professor Di Cook, who is well-known for her work in data visualisation and teaching of tutorials.

Participants need a basic knowledge of R, ideally with familiarity with the topics covered in R for Data Science.
