Core ContentsThis training programme is on spatial analysis using QGIS and R packages. Both softwares are an open source software perhaps the most powerful computer environment for spatial data analysis. QGIS and R has core functionality (extended by 100s of packages (plug-ins) to read and write spatial data files, manipulate and summarize data. Some of these packages provide more advanced generic functionality, others provide highly specialized and cutting-edge methods that are only used in highly specialized analysis. R-Studio is a separate program that �wraps around� R to make it easier to use. Uses of modern geo-statistical tools are very minimal in Indian National Agricultural Research System. This training programme aims at enhancing competency levels of NARS professionals in understanding Spatial analysis using open source software�s to extract maximum information from spatial data
