some links about statistical tools

The reason i explore the statistical tools is related to my research project. Our lab has a project about applying sensor networks to agriculture. To help agronomists have better understanding about their plants, we employ sensor networks to collect environmental parameters of crops grown in green houses and crop fields.  Although we got a great amount of data, the data is not ready for use. We have to preprocess the raw data to eliminate or correct the false ones, which usually requires statistical computation over the datasets. After simple survey, I’ve decided to give R a little try.
