Robert Grant's stats blog: citizen science, R and the Heathrow Cursus


A blog post I made where I visit the cursus (Feb 2016) and elastic-band my phone to a floor sweeper / magic mop and then bodge together a bit of programming (open source, therefore free) to give a fine measure of the surface of the cursus. A slow way of mapping endangered surfaces, but accessible to all.
