I have a question with regard to joining to datasets.
On the one hand I have information about the location of a conflict regarding its lat/long, radius, and area and how it changes over time. Here is a small snap for the conflict with the ID 91 in Chad.
On the other hand, I have georeferenced data about different aid projects in Chad over the time. Here as well a small snap of the dataset:
My goal is to aggregate the aid data to the conflict regions to finally analyze the relationship over time.
I have been reading many comments in the community but am still totally lost regarding how I can join the data using R. Would you recommend to first transform the conflict data set into polygons or is that not necessary? I would already be very very happy about a small hint.
