The aim of this online course, “Graphics in R,” is to teach you how to produce statistical plots of data using the R language and environment for statistical computing and graphics.
[su_tab title=”Program structure”]
We will cover the creation of standard plots such as scatterplots, bar plots, histograms, and boxplots and we will spend some time on the underlying model used to produce plots in R so that you can extensively customize these plots.
We will also look at producing Trellis plots in R and how to customize them.
Finally, we will introduce the grid graphics system and look at producing unique plots from the ground up using basic components.
- Week 1: Basic Plots
- Week 2: Customizing Plots
- Week 3: The Lattice Package (Trellis plots)
- Week 4: Grid Graphics (drawing pictures)
