Department of Biostatistics Seminar/Workshop Series presents:

ggplot 2: An Implementation of the Grammar of Graphics in R

Hadley Wickham

Iowa State University

January 9, 2008, 10:00-11:00am, MCN, C2209

  • how to use qplot instead of base or lattice graphics
  • the theory of the grammar of graphics
  • the seven components of a ggplot plot (the data, aesthetic mappings, geometric elements, statistical transformations, position adjustments, scales, the coordinate system, and facetting)
  • combining these components to make complex, layered, graphics

I'll provide a copy of my slides and R code so you can work through the examples again at your leisure. Please bring your laptop.
