Data Visualization in R
Exploring data with plots allows us to visualize relationships, spot unusual observations, and find unexpected patterns. In this workshop, we’ll introduce the ggplot2 R package—a powerful set of tools for creating expressive, rich visualizations. With its consistent syntax and layered approach to making graphics, ggplot2 has revolutionized data visualization. What previously would have required tedious programming can now be accomplished in a few lines of ggplot2 code. This session will introduce the logic behind ggplot2, how to use ggplot2 to explore your data, and how to customize and polish ggplot2 graphs. To participate in this workshop, you should have R and RStudio installed and have basic familiarity with both. If you're unfamiliar with the basic syntax of R, we recommend participating in an introductory workshop or class before participating in this workshop. UVA Library Research Data Services offers a “Getting Started with R” workshop; in spring 2023, that will be offered on January 26th at 10:00 AM. Alternatively, you might consider Data Carpentry’s Intro to R series. We won’t review the fundamentals of R syntax in this workshop, but if you have questions about the material, or if you need help getting R and RStudio set up, you can reach out to Jacob (email@example.com) in advance.
