It requires up-to-date versions of the following packages to be loaded:1
Hello everybody! A lot of things have changed since the last blogpost about Geocomputation with R. In this post I’ll give an update of our progress and our plans for the next chapters.
Third author Probably the most important change is having a third author - Jannes Muenchow. He is a GIScientist based at the University of Jena with a keen interest in spatial and geostatistical modeling, algorithm automation and geocomputation.
