Introduction to Data Visualization with R

Workshop series
Computational and Data Systems Initiative

You always wanted to create nice looking graphs from you tables and statistical analyses? This is your workshop. You will learn how the grammar of graphics (Leland Wilkinson 1999) is implemented into the ggplot2 package in R and how to use it to flexibly create amazing looking graphs.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to
     > understand the grammar of graphics in the ggplot2 package
     > create different types of graphs
     > change the aesthetics of graphs (e.g. colour, formatting of labels and axes, themes)
     > use techniques to deal with overplotting (e.g. groups and facets)

Pre-requisites? Introductory understanding of R, e.g. from Introduction to Data Science with R or equivalent.
