Welcome to USGS-R
USGS-R is a community of support for users of the R scientific programming language.
USGS-R resources include R training materials, R tools for the retrieval and analysis of USGS data, and support for a growing group of USGS-R developers.
R is a flexible programming language that provides researchers with access to state-of-the-science analytical methods. Moreover, R is open-source and free to use for all. The USGS-R builds on the existing R community and provides resources for technical skill-building within USGS for all levels of expertise.
