Data Visualization with R

When working with large sets of numbers, it is often more useful to display the information graphically using histograms, scatter plots, bar charts, box plots and other depictions.

This workshop teaches participants how to gain insights into data through visualization using R as the programming language.  Basic knowledge of R is recommended, although not mandatory.

Participants learn how to:

  • Create simple scatterplots, histograms, and box plots
  • Compare the plotting features of base R and the ggplot2 package
  • Plot with ggplot2
  • Plot time series data
  • Arrange and export plots
