Workshop: Mapping species’ ranges

Event Date: 
Thursday, January 26, 2017 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Location: 
OML 201 See map
We’ll use a complete workflow - from data download to pretty maps of predictions - to model a species’ geographic distributions (ranges). Goals include understanding:(1) Modeling decisions; (2) Statistical regression techniques; (3) Machine learning techniques; (4) Raster manipulation; (5) Customize plots; (6) how to write a workflow that others can use.
 
Note: The application in this workshop somewhat specific to biology, but relies on very generally useful computation in R, logistic and Poisson regression techniques, and spatial tools common in all scientific fields. All members of the Yale community are welcome!
