Upcoming Neotoma2 R package workshops

Two opportunities for gaining experience with using the new neotoma2 R package are coming up:

March 1st, 8:30am - 11:20am Pacific time, via Zoom

Host: Simon Goring,

The workshop is open to all participants, and is focused on folks who have some experience with R, but experience is not required.

We will be showing folks how to search for and download data from Neotoma, with a focus on pollen data from the Pacific Northwest of North America. The code we will be using is easily transferrable to other dataset types and locations.

Once we've accepted your application we'll send along a Zoom invitation. If you have any more questions please don't hesitate to ask, either by email or in our Slack workspace

July 13th, in person @ INQUA Roma 2023

: Jessica Blois,

This workshop will focus on using the Neotoma Paleoecology Database to analyze Quaternary data, and provide support for uploading and archiving data in Neotoma. The morning session is designed to provide users of the Neotoma Database with an overview of the new neotoma2 R package, and its use in obtaining data from the Neotoma Paleoecology Database, presenting different use cases that rely on the Neotoma2 R package. The afternoon session is designed as a help desk / co-work space, where potential new database users can drop by to learn about the database and existing users and data stewards can receive support for working on data uploads to Neotoma or data analyses from Associate Chair Jessica Blois and other experienced Neotoma Data Stewards.

Please register for this workshop via the INQUA Roma conference registration page. It is workshop number PCW4.
