PhD Course: Introductory R for Spatial Analysis

When: 10th of November, 2014

Where: University of Leeds, UK

Registration Deadline: 1st of November, 2014

 

As spatial datasets get larger more sophisticated software needs to be harnessed for their analysis. R is now a widely used open source software platform for statistical analysis and is increasingly popular for those working with spatial data thanks to its powerful analysis and visualisation packages.  This course introduces the basics of how R can be used for spatial data. No previous experience of computer programming is required but participants would benefit from some experience of GIS and spatial data formats and concepts.

UHRs høringssvar til KD på forslag til revidert målstruktur for universiteter og høyskoler

UHR har gitt høringssvar til Kunnskapsdepartementet på forslag til revidert målstruktur for universiteter og høyskoler. Saken er behandlet i UHRs administrasjonsutvalg og i UHRs styre. Både administrasjonsutvalget og styret mener at sektoren lever godt med hovedindikatorene i ett år til.

 

UHR vil svært gjerne være en aktiv og konstruktiv samarbeidspartner i det videre arbeidet, for å sikre god forankring i institusjonene fram til endelig utkast vedtas. Dette vil bidra til å lette implementeringen vesentlig. Høringssvaret kan lastes ned her: Revidert målstruktur for universiteter og høyskoler.
