How to adopt this course

All the required data to run this course or individual practicals is provided in the GitHub repository except for the raw earth observation data used in Advanced raster analysis due to its size. Instructions are provided within the practical to either download the dataset from the USGS website or download it from a shared GoogleDrive folder.

There are two main options to adopt this course:

  1. Adopt the course in its entirety by forking the repository on GitHub and Pulling to your local machine or simply download a .zip file containing the entire course.

  2. Adopt a single practical by downloading the .rmd file and associated data.
