Have you used R but are unsure of how to harness its potential to create data visualizations beyond very basic plots? Do you find yourself wishing you could simplify your figures into cohesive, multi-layered representations? Put simply, would you like to make your visualizations more intricate and appealing, with less time and effort? This seminar, targeting intermediate R users (i.e., not complete novices), will detail a variety of ways to modify plots in base R and will also introduce attendees to the lattice and ggplot2 packages. Through a combination of lecture-style examples and hands-on programming, attendees will leave the seminar being able to:
Identify and make edits to various graphical parameters in base R
Create wireframe and contour plots with lattice
Generate scatterplots with beautiful fit lines with ggplot2
Troubleshoot a variety of plotting errors across all packages
The seminar will be presented by Lisa Fiorenzo, a staff Methodology Consultant for the Center for Research on Families and the Data Manager/Analyst for the Rudd Adoption Research Program in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences.
There is a $5.00 registration fee for this event.
