Description

R: Visualization with ggplot2

ggplot2 is one of the most popular R packages – for good reason. It’s a data visualization framework that logically associates features of your data with elements of the plot. Once you’ve learned the basic ggplot2 syntax for making a plot, you can adapt it to make new visualizations with different plot types easily. ggplot2 makes plotting multiple data series with different lines or marker types straightforward, and it lets you create multiple plots for different groups in your data with one command. Whether you’re creating data visualizations for data exploration or publication, come learn why The New York Times and FiveThirtyEight both use ggplot2.

Things you’ll learn in this workshop:

  • Basics of plotting with ggplot2
  • How to change plot types and options
  • Reshaping data before plotting
  • Creating multiple plots with facets
