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.
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)
