Increasingly today, collected data includes a spatial component. PostgreSQL + PostGIS, combined with R via PL/R, provides an awesome tool-chain for advanced spatial analytics on such data! This presentation will introduce the audience to PL/R, discuss the pros and cons of this approach to spatial data analysis, then walk through examples of spatial analysis using PostgreSQL, PostGIS, and PL/R.
