APECS Oceania/Datatas – “Antarctic Mapping in R” Workshop

As part of International Polar Week, APECS Oceania (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists) collaborated with Datatas to provide a workshop tackling all the difficulties of producing a good map. Specifically, the workshop was a mixture of the theory behind Antarctic Mapping in A with hands on practical examples using R mapping techniques including SOmap.

Presenters – Dale Maschette (AAD)
