Machine learning for spatial prediction - notes form OpenGeoHub 2019


Presentation and Tutorial 9

Regular R-Meetup
SEM 8, Eurac Research, Bolzano

In this meetup we will see how to perform spatial prediction using machine learning algotrithms in R. We will mainly use Random Forest

We will cover the following topics:

  • Spatial modelling requirements
  • Overview of Machine Learning and their strategies (focus on Random Forest)
  • Model interpretation
  • Prediction of uncertainty
  • Questions and discussion

My research interests include modelling the spatial distribution of soil properties, the role of trace metals in soil functioning, and water use efficiency in agriculture.
