Tutorial: Poisson Regression in R

Poisson Regression can be a really useful tool if you know how and when to use it. In this tutorial we’re going to take a long look at Poisson Regression, what it is, and how R programmers can use it in the real world. Specifically, we’re going to cover: What Poisson Regression actually is and […]

Historic Wildfire Data: Exploratory Visualization in R

In recent weeks, news of the devastating wildfires sweeping parts of the US state of California have featured prominently in the news. While most wildfires are started accidentally by humans, weather conditions like wind and drought can exacerbate fires’ spread and intensity. Improved understanding of historical wildfire trends and causes can inform fire management and […]

Using Linear Regression for Predictive Modeling in R

Predictive models are extremely useful, when learning r language, for forecasting future outcomes and estimating metrics that are impractical to measure. For example, data scientists could use predictive models to forecast crop yields based on rainfall and temperature, or to determine whether patients with certain traits are more likely to react badly to a new […]
