SheffieldR - NBN Biodiversity Hack
We are delighted to announce the first Hack event for the SheffieldR Users Group! This event aims to bring together R users and learners of all levels for a hands on session with some real world open data. We will be working with the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) dataset, which records sightings of different species along with their location taken from numerous wildlife surveys. This event is supported by the Sheffield Wildlife Trust, and we will be sharing our outputs with them as we go.
The event will run over three consecutive Tuesday evenings, based at the Sheffield Methods Institute at the University of Sheffield (see map). You are welcome to attend as many or as few sessions as you wish - so don't worry if you can't commit to all three at this stage. We kick off at 4pm but feel free to come along later if you can't make that time. Feel free to bring your own laptops if you wish but this is not required.
All are welcome - there will be a mix of experienced R users as well as beginners, and no knowledge of biodiversity is required. An introductory session will be held on Feb 23rd at the February SheffieldR Users Group meeting at the Red Deer - you can sign up to this and any future SheffieldR events at our meetup site (http://www.meetup.com/SheffieldR-Sheffield-R-Users-Group/).
We look forward to seeing you there!
