This is not a course in statistics, but rather in using R to solve more advanced problems that go beyond simple statistical analyses. For example, how do I deal with date and time data? Suppose you have 5 years of data and with the same analysis to be done for each year’s data. What is the best way to structure this in R? How do I write a function to do a yearly analysis that is beyond what is commonly available in R? How do I restructure my data so do a similar analysis on 10 separate variables? How do I plot my spatial data on a map? How do I manipulate shape-files? How do I make an interactive graphic (visualization)?
