Data Visualization in R
This workshop is aimed primarily at graduate students, but all are welcome. The ability to create meaningful and attractive data visualizations is an essential skill of data-intensive research. This workshop will give you an overview of the grammar of graphics plotting concepts from the ggplot2 package. We will explore ggplot’s three plotting layers, data, aesthetics, and geometries, for many univariate and multivariate graphics. These concepts will be presented in an interactive format, integrating computational practice throughout the workshop. The workshop will be presented in the RStudio Cloud. Desktop computers are available in the Heathcote Classroom, or feel free to bring your own laptop.
