Openair & R training explained...
R is a freely available programming language, designed from the
ground-up to make working with data easier and more reproducible. The language
is widely used in the public and private sectors, in industries as wide ranging
as financial services, healthcare, research, consultancy, journalism, and more.
Data analysts and scientists in major companies like Google, Airbnb and Meta
all use R to help gain extra insight from their data.
"openair" is a package written in R, designed
specifically for the analysis of air quality data. It is used worldwide by air
quality practitioners in academia, government and industry to learn more about
their long-term measurement data. Functionality includes the ability to examine
and visualise air quality time series and trends, as well as perform
"directional analysis" to understand potential pollution sources.
openair also provides easy access to air quality data in the UK from nationally
and locally managed air quality networks.
Each day will start at 10.00am and finish at 3.00pm (BST), with a 40 minute break between morning and afternoon sessions.
