Promoting the use of R in the NHS

Events

Introduction to Mapping with R using SF and Leaflet

Presented by: Ben Alcock, Data Scientist, NHS Fylde Coast CCGs

Date: Tuesday 20th July 2021, 9.30 am to 1.00 pm

Pre-requisites: Knowledge of tidyverse functions in this workshop is necessary (mostly dplyr for mutate/summarise/join).

Some knowledge of SQL/PostgreSQL would be useful as I plan on loading some data from Postgres, but this is not 100% necessary as I’ll show how to just get data from static files as well.

Details: In this workshop, we will go through introductory mapping in R, learning to import spatial datasets, manipulate and work with different spatial data types (e.g. points, polygons), link them in with “standard” data frames to enrich the geo-dataset, and display mapped data using Leaflet.

NHS- R workshops are Limited to NHS employees and those who work in the public healthcare sector.
