Dear afrimapr community,

In this month’s meetup, we'll give more info about the upcoming afrimapr keynote talk at the international useR!2022 conference ( and our invitation to complete the community feedback form at

I will also introduce a range of R packages that facilitates easy access to open data sets. We will look at data related to mapping, health, climate, society, and more, while specifically focussing on Africa. We’ll also share some resources to help you get started with your data package in R. The talk will be relevant to those not yet familiar with R as well.

afrimapr’s monthly virtual meetups aim to support the development of an active African R mapping community. It offers you a chance to learn about new resources, ask questions, showcase your work, and grow your R mapping network.

Come along and say, “Hello!” No preparation or experience with R or mapping is needed!

Please share with colleagues who may be interested to join the session.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Kind regards,

Anelda on behalf of the afrimapr team
