Warwick R User Group

March 22, 2017

I gave a talk last Thursday at the Warwick R Users’ Group (WRUG), a regular meeting that is held during term time in the stats department. Some of this was a rehash of a previous talk I gave at BRAG, updated for the 2011 edition of the National Land Cover Database (NLCD). But I also discussed how to download and import data from MODIS and Landsat 8. My slides are below and the R source code is available from the WRUG homepage.
