During this presentation members from the afrimapr team will briefly introduce this rather young project that’s currently funded through the Wellcome Trust. Participants will learn about resources available for making it easier to use R for mapping data (with a specific focus on data from Africa). The team will also showcase some of the learning materials that are already available and some that are currently under development. Finally, we’ll share the vision for the growth of a community of R mapping enthusiasts on the continent.

Although the resources are developed with a focus on Africa, everything is transferable to other contexts.
