PhD+ Data Literacy in R 3: Data Visualization

Zoom (Please RSVP)

This is the third session of PhD+ Data Literacy: R series. 

Exploring our data with graphs allows us to visualize relationships, spot unusual observations, or find unexpected patterns. In this session, we introduce how to effectively use the ggplot2 package to explore and visualize data in R. With its consistent syntax and layered approach to making graphics, ggplot2 has revolutionized data visualization. What previously would have required hours of tedious programming can now be accomplished in a few lines of ggplot2 code. This workshop will introduce the logic behind ggplot2, how to use ggplot2 to explore data, and how to customize and polish ggplot2 graphs.
