The first session will provide a two hour introduction to the theory and application of Wilkinson’s Grammar as implemented by Wickham, concentrating on real-world examples.
This session will be a three hour computer lab, to provide a hands-on experience with ggplot2 and other graphical packages built on the formal grammar e.g. ggmap, which links ggplot to on-line map databases, like Google Maps and the OpenStreetMap project.
While the lecture session may be of general interest, computer lab participants are expected to be familiar with R, particularly the base R plot functions and data frames. It is recommended that you bring a laptop with R and R Studio. A number of R packages will be used during the computer lab, which can be installed from the command line via: install.packages(c(“ggplot2”,”plyr”,”gridExtra”,”mgcv”,”RColorBrewer”,”ggmap”))
