Data Visualization with ggplot2

Data Visualization with ggplot2

Visualizing data allows us to discover relationships, spot unusual observations, or find unexpected patterns. In this workshop we introduce how to use the ggplot2 package to explore and visualize data in R. Whether you’re brand new to R or an experienced users who’s curious about ggplot2, this hands-on workshop will get you quickly up and running using ggplot2 to create informative graphs. We’ll work through several examples to explain the "grammar of graphics" -- aesthetics, geoms, facets, scales -- and give you opportunities to practice coding your own plots. By the end of the workshop you’ll have the tools you need to explore and visualize your own data. To participate you will need R and RStudio installed. Both are free. This workshop assumes basic knowledge of R at the level of our Intro to R workshop.
