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.
