This educational book is designed to introduce QGIS and R Studio to anyone with an interest in mapping and data visualisation. It also discusses the basic principles of marine and climate science using openly available atmospheric carbon-dioxide, sea surface temperature, hurricane track data and ecosystem shapefiles (e.g. coral reefs).
Working through this book you will develop basic skills needed to use both QGIS and R Studio. Specifically, you will learn how to use the various data visualisation packages in R Studio, and how to use both QGIS and R Studio interchangeably for mapping purposes. Whilst learning to create interactive maps and graphs, you will also gain more knowledge about the basics of marine and climate science, and the impact of climate change on our Planet.
