- I have found the Cookbook for R helpful.
- If you work with ggplot, have a look at the official site.
- If you're into twitter, might I suggest following Hadley Wickham.
- As per this post on r bloggers, refer to the free PDF version of James et al.'s Introduction to Statistical Learning for all things statistical learning.
Please note that these resources were primarily intended for the reading group, so that you as a proficient user of LaTeX and/or R might not get that much from them. They might be rooted in discussions we had at our meetings, etc. etc. For that reason, they might to be too specific at times, and too general at other times.
Having said that, I do think that these resources might still come in handy for beginners or intermediate users of R and/or LaTeX.
In no particular order, here are some books and twitter accounts I enjoyed (or continue to enjoy) with regards to more open streets, active transport, and cities for all ages and abilities - and some other neat city stuff:
- Charles Montogomery's Happy City: Transforming Our Lives Through Urban Design
- Jeff Speck's Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time
- Taras Grescoe's Straphanger: Saving Our Cities and Ourselves from the Automobile
- Mike Lydon & Anthony Garcia's Tactical Urbanism: Short-term Action for Long-term Change
- Janette Sadik-Khan's Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution
- Jane Jacobs's The Death and Life of Great American Cities
- Anthony M. Townsend's Smart Cities: Big Data, Civic Hackers, and the Quest for a New Utopia
I do not necessarily endorse the accounts and people mentioned in this list (apart from Paths for People, of course); I have just found, at some point in the space-time continuum, that they have posted interesting tidbits around urbanism and cities.
- Paths for People
- Gil Penalosa
- The Jane Jacobs Project
- VisionZero Canada
- Brent Toderian
- Jeff Speck
- Charles Montgomery
- Janette Sadik-Khan
- Alliance for Biking & Walking
- Or, you could simply go ahead and follow/look at this handy twitter list, which might get updated more frequently than the list above.
