Very good text book to take you from beguinner to expert in ggplot2 visualization Cannot wait for the ggvis seuel This book of graphs was a gift for a PhD candidate in Cognitive Neuroscience She was thrilled with the many charts and coding options that she will be able to use in her research Well worth the price Supplied as described Handy for ggplot. This new edition to the classic book by ggplot2 creator Hadley Wickham highlights compatibility with knitr and RStudio ggplot2 is a data visualization package for R that helps users create data graphics including those that are multi layered with ease With ggplot2 its easy toproduce handsome publication uality plots with automatic legends created from the plot specificationsuperimpose multiple layers points lines maps tiles box plots from different data sources with automatica.
Hives to get the code to run Some sections of the book are excellent The website is not properly maintained and generally though a useful text if you are prepared to edit and alter the code and databases I think everyone is waiting for R Graphics Cookbook by Chang for a better text covering graphics If you can wait until December this may be a better text. Plot This book will be useful to everyone who has struggled with displaying data in an informative and attractive way Some basic knowledge of R is necessary eg importing data into R ggplot2 is a mini language specifically tailored for producing graphics and youll learn everything you need in the book After reading this book youll be able to produce graphics customized precisely for your problems and youll find it easy to get graphics out of your head and on to the screen or pa.
Worth reading A great book Reuired reading for anyone interested in visualizing data with R Also includes new material on data manipulationwrangling and a bit on modelling and model visualization The code used is often out of date or simply doesn t work The section on maps uses old data frames that no longer exist To access them you need to search arc. Lly adjusted common scalesadd customizable smoothers that use powerful modeling capabilities of R such as loess linear models generalized additive models and robust regressionsave any ggplot2 plot or part thereof for later modification or reusecreate custom themes that capture in house or ournal style reuirements and that can easily be applied to multiple plotsapproach a graph from a visual perspective thinking about how each component of the data is represented on the final.
