Spatial Data Science with R Applications

This resource is the digital version of the book titled Spatial Data Science: With Applications in R by Pebesma and Bivand.

The authors introduce the book as follows:

This book introduces and explains the concepts underlying spatial data: points, lines, polygons, rasters, coverages, geometry attributes, data cubes, reference systems, as well as higher-level concepts including how attributes relate to geometries and how this affects analysis.

The target user of the resource is:

The book aims at data scientists who want to get a grip on using spatial data in their analysis. To exemplify how to do things, it uses R. In future editions we hope to extend this with examples using Python (see, e.g., Bivand 2022a) and Julia.
