The SLU Data Science Seminar is the host of Chris Prener’s openGIS project. The project is a collaborative effort with SLU students to curate and host GIS data about the St. Louis area in an accessible manner. We also maintain several R packages that contain tools for working with spatial data. More details about our projects and our commitment to creating an inclusive, welcoming data science community are available on our About page.

If you are interested in participating in either data curation or R software development, please email Chris.
