Seminar Series: Taking Your R Shiny Apps to the Next Level

The Ecological Forecasting Initiative & ESA Statistical Ecology section are hosting a seminar series in August and September to demonstrate a variety of technical aspects for R Shiny web app development. Attendees will gain insights into the addition of key technical features that can be used to augment Shiny apps. Example R code that incorporates these features in a Shiny app will be included.

The EFI-NEON Research Coordination Network is an NSF-funded grant to create a community of practice that builds capacity for ecological forecasting by leveraging NEON data products. The first round of the NEON Ecological Forecast Challenge begins in 2021. The Challenge revolves around five theme areas that span aquatic and terrestrial systems, and population, community, and ecosystem processes across a broad range of ecoregions that uses data collected by NEON.
