>From 25-30 August 2008 the research school ICG organizes a five-day course targeted at PhD students,
academic staff and project teams working with spatio-temporal data. The course aims at providing a
balanced combination of theoretical and hands-on-software training. The participants will receive
many practical instructions on how to generate R scripts and use SAGA GIS / Google Earth to
visualize outputs of analysis. All these packages are available as open-source software or as
freeware. After completing the course, the course participants are expected to obtain sufficient
knowledge to independently produce R scripts, perform various analyzes and generate outputs that can
be directly distributed to the end-users.
Moderators: T. Hengl (uva.nl), D.G. Rossiter (itc.nl), G.B.M. Heuvelink (wur.nl) and V. Olaya

dinner and local transportation.
