This month we’re focusing on the theme Spatial data in R with community host Mike Mahoney, maintainer of several spatial packages with rOpenSci such as waywiser, terrainr and geojsonio, as well as spatialsample.

Come for the full 2 hrs or only as long as you need!

  • Explore R packages for working with spatial data
  • Cowork independently on work related to R
    • Plan out that package you’ve always wanted to create
    • Work on packages that tend to be neglected
    • What ever you need to get done!


  • Meet community host, Mike Mahoney, and discuss aspects of working with spatial data in R.
  • Meet other R users and rOpenSci staff in Zoom
  • Get answers to your questions
    • Ask your hosts
    • Ask your fellow coworkers
    • Discuss your work, best practices, or get advice and resources
  • Answer other coworkers’ questions!

We host Social Coworking + Office Hours on the first Tuesday of each month, alternating among timezones to accommodate different parts of the world.
