Data Visualization in R
This 2 hour workshop is an introduction to visualization in R and is the second of a 4-part Spring 2018 semester R workshop series. We will use the same dataset used in the first workshop to decide on which data to plot with the base, lattice, and ggplot2 packages. We will practice various plotting functions to make desired figures and modify the aesthetics of figures. Finally, we will save these figures in different formats. The last half hour of the workshop is dedicated to working with your own data using these skills.
Prerequisites: Minimal coding experience necessary (review the IntroR.mov and Intro_R.R files on our OSF site if you need some review), and need to have R and RStudio installed and the ‘data_vis_R.R’ R script downloaded from our OSF site (https://osf.io/6jb9t/). All participants need to bring a laptop and option to bring your own data.
** Please enter your name on the waitlist if we reach capacity. We may offer an additional session depending on interest. **
