Reading list
Each week you will be assigned with some reading from the books listed below. In particular, we will be using R for Data Science by Garrett Grolemund and Hadley Wickham and Programming Skills for Data Science by Michael Freeman and Joel Ross for the first two units, and Discovering Statistics Using R by Andy Field, Jeremy Miles and Zoë Field, and Machine Learning with R: Expert techniques for predictive modeling by Brett Lantz for the third and fourth unit. For a sneak peek at how to use R for geographic information analysis, I can suggest An Introduction to R for Spatial Analysis and Mapping by Chris Brunsdon and Lex Comber and Geocomputation with R by Robin Lovelace.
