In this talk we'll introduce the Grammar of Graphics\, wh
ich allows you to compose graphs by combining independent components\, and
the implementation of this theory in R -- the ggplot2 package. We will de
scribe the basics of building plots with ggplot2 and touch on a few approa
ches for customizing the plots. We will also highlight a few packages that
are built to supplement ggplot2.
\n
\nKey learnings include:
\n- \;Fundamentals of the theory of the Grammar of Graphics
\n
- \;Basics of building plots with ggplot2\, layer by layer
\n-&nb
sp\;Customising plots with functionality that comes with the ggplot2 packa
ge as well as supplemented by other packages.

| \n Mine Ç\;etinka ya-Rundel is Senior Lecturer in the School of Mathematics at University of Edinburgh\, Data Scientist and Professional Educator at RStudio\, and Ass ociate Professor of the Practice position at the Department of Statistical Science at Duke University. Mine&rsquo\;s work focuses on innovation in s tatistics and data science pedagogy\, with an emphasis on computing\, repr oducible research\, student-centred learning\, and open-source education a s well as pedagogical approaches for enhancing retention of women and unde r-represented minorities in STEM. Mine also works on the OpenIntro project and she is the creator and maintainer of \;datasciencebox.org. \n | \n In this talk we'll introduce the Grammar of Graphic s\, which allows you to compose graphs by combining independent components \, and the implementation of this theory in R -- the ggplot2 package. We w ill describe the basics of building plots\, introduce commonly used geoms and statistical functions used to calculate these geoms. We will also touc h on customizing ggplot2 defaults such as themes and colours. Additionally \, we will highlight a few packages that are built to supplement ggplot2 b y adding features that ease highlighting and annotation as well as additio nal geoms. \n |
