Data Visualization in R
This workshop will cover fundamental concepts for creating effective data visualization using the popular R plotting package, ggplot2. 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 in the ggplot2 package (geoms, aesthetics, stats, and faceting) to create beautiful plots layer-by-layer. Upon completing this lesson, learners will be able to use ggplot2 to explore high-dimensional datasets. This session will be taught via Zoom: a link to the Zoom session will be sent in the confirmation and reminder emails.
Pre-requisites: attendance at Introduction to R or working knowledge of R/RStudio
