Alex Brenning’s Geographic Data Science Corner

Welcome to my geographic data science corner! On this website I share some thoughts related to my research and teaching — for example, tips and tricks for improved geospatial analyses, updates on my R packages, and other fun stuff.


Willkommen in meiner Grabbelkiste für die geographischen Datenwissenschaften! Hier teile ich ab und zu Ideen aus meiner Forschung und Lehre — z.B. Tipps und Tricks für räumliche Analysen, Updates zu meinen R-Paketen und andere spaßige Sachen. Es gibt Beiträge auf Deutsch und Englisch, mal so, mal so.
