Short Course on

Spatial and Spatio-temporal Bayesian Models with R

5-6 June 2017

Faculdade de Ciências da Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal

Prof.Virgilio Gómez-Rubio, University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain

The course will provide an introduction to the analysis of spatial and spatio-temporal data with the R statistical software.  First of all, the course will focus on the different packages to import, handle and visualise geographical data in R. Secondly, Bayesian model building with the R-INLA package will also be discussed to analyse different types of data. It will start with the analysis of lattice data. Next, geostatistical models will be addressed with a focus on Stochastic Partial Differential Equation (SPDE). Finally, the analysis of point patterns with INLA will be described.

The short course is organized by Centro de Estatística e Aplicações da Universidade de Lisboa (CEAUL). Enquiries must be sent to
