Data Mashups in R

Book Description

This article demonstrates how the realworld data is imported, managed, visualized, and analyzed within the R statistical framework. Presented as a spatial mashup, this tutorial introduces the user to R packages, R syntax, and data structures. The user will learn how the R environment works with R packages as well as its own capabilities in statistical analysis.
