<https://codata.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/afrimapr.png>During this
presentation members from the afrimapr team will briefly introduce this
rather young project that’s currently funded through the Wellcome Trust.
Participants will learn about resources available for making it easier to
use R for mapping data (with a specific focus on data from Africa). The
team will also showcase some of the learning materials that are already
available and some that are currently under development. Finally, we’ll
share the vision for the growth of a community of R mapping enthusiasts on
the continent.

Although the resources are developed with a focus on Africa, everything is
transferable to other contexts.
