Advanced Data Visualization with ggplot2

Advanced Data Visualization with ggplot2

This workshop will cover fundamental concepts for creating effective data visualization and will introduce tools and techniques for visualizing large, high-dimensional data using R and the ggplot2 package. We will review fundamental concepts for visually displaying quantitative information, such as using series of small multiples, avoiding "chart-junk," and maximizing the data-ink ratio. We will cover the grammar of graphics (geoms, aesthetics, stats, and faceting), and using the ggplot2 package to create plots layer-by-layer. 

Prerequisites: This is not a beginner workshop. This lesson assumes a basic familiarity with R, data frames, and manipulating data with dplyr and %>%.

Setup instructions: Laptop with all software installed is required. Instructions for software setup to be provided prior to the workshop.
