Do you need to create a continuous surface of data (i.e., raster) based on sample point data taken at selected locations? This course is designed for those who are interested in collecting, creating, processing, and interpolating geostatistical data. Through this course, you will learn variogram analysis and kriging methods to model and analyze spatial data based on information collected from sampled locations. You will have the opportunity to immediately practice your new skills via hands-on exercises focused on agri-food applications throughout the 2.5-hour workshop.

This workshop is part of a 5-module series on working with and analyzing spatial agricultural data in R.
