Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This practical guide provides more than 150 recipes to help you generate high-quality graphs quickly, without having to comb through all the details of Rs graphing systems. Each recipe tackles a specific problem with a solution you can apply to your own project, and includes a discussion of how and why the recipe works.

Most of the recipes use the ggplot2 package, a powerful and flexible way to make graphs in R. If you have a basic understanding of the R language, youre ready to get started.

  • Use Rs default graphics for quick exploration of data
  • Create a variety of bar graphs, line graphs, and scatter plots
  • Summarize data distributions with histograms, density curves, box plots, and other examples
  • Provide annotations to help viewers interpret data
  • Control the overall appearance of graphics
  • Render data groups alongside each other for easy comparison
  • Use colors in plots
  • Create network graphs, heat maps, and 3D scatter plots
  • Structure data for graphing

Synopsis:

In the last few years, the R programming language has gained a lot of mindshare among people who need to manipulate and analyze data. One reason for this growth is that R has many tools for generating generate high-quality graphs. R Graphics Cookbook serves as a practical guide to help you make graphs quickly, without having to spend time learning about all the details of the R graphing systems.

Author Winston Chang bases the book in part on his own website, R Cookbook. He also includes coverage of the ggplot2 package, a more powerful and flexible way to make graphs in R. For situations where this is not the best option, Chang provides readers with simple versions of the non-ggplot2 alternatives.
