- 12 Jan: Skim Bivand Chapter 1, Read Bivand Sections 2.1 and 2.2. Practice
the R commands in section 2.2. On Thursday, be prepared to ask questions about anything
in section 2.2 that you don't understand.
If you are new to R, you may find it helpful to skim The R for Ecologists document written by Dave Roberts. I find it more focused than the general Introduction to R document.
