== Geostat 5-DAY training courses ==
[[Image:geostat_icon.jpg|right|thumb|150px|GEOSTAT icon]]
The author of this website regularly organizes (with a group of colleagues: Gerard B.M. Heuvelink, Edzer Pebesma, Victor Olaya Ferrero, Roger Bivand, Olaf Conrad) a 5-days training course entitled [http://geostat-course.org "Spatio-temporal data analysis with R + SAGA + Google Earth"]. The objective of the course is to provide training to junior researchers interested to use R-based tools for analysis of spatially and temporally referenced data. The course is non-commercial, which implies that none of the lecturers is contracted or will receive any financial awards. The course consists of a balanced combination of theoretical and practical training and includes a one-day workshop where each participant can present their case studies and receive a valuable feedback.
