R

Steph Locke has a compendium of resources for people wishing to learn more about working with spatial data in R:

I recently met up with someone who does geospatial stuff but uses the more traditional GIS software to do it.

Feel free to comment or tweet your recommendations to get them added to this list.

There’s a lot of reading, watching, and doing there, so thanks to Steph for putting it together.
