This book focuses on one of the two major topics of data analytics: data visualization, aka, computer graphics. In one place major R systems for visualization are discussed, organized by topic and not by system. Anyone doing data analysis will be shown how to use R to generate any of the basic visualizations with the R visualization systems. Further, this book introduces the author’s lessR system, which always can accomplish a visualization with less coding than the use of other systems, sometimes dramatically so, and also provides accompanying statistical analyses.

Key Features:

  • Presents thorough coverage of the leading R visualization system, ggplot2.
  • Gives specific guidance on using base R graphics to attain visualizations of the same quality as those provided by ggplot2.
  • Offers instruction in the author’s visualization system, lessR, which is generally less verbose than ggplot2 and lattice.
  • Inclusion of the various approaches to R graphics organized by topic instead of by system.
  • Presents the recent work on interactive visualization in R.
