The ninth working session of the Grenoble R community will be about "Data vizualisation with package {ggplot2}". Drinks and snacks are served during the second part of the session.

Each month, the Grenoble R-group organizes one working session of 2 hours, on Thursdays, from 16h-18h, at the Imag building.

Everyone is welcome from beginners to advanced R users. Participants just need to bring their laptop. Presentations or tutorials will last 30 to 60 min, on R topics that can be useful to many people, with practical examples. During the second part of the session, specific problems encountered by participants when coding in R will be discussed.

Drinks and snacks will be shared during the second part of the session.


June 13, 2019: Data vizualisation with package {ggplot2}

      'The simple graph has brought more information to the data analyst’s mind than any other device.' --- John Tukey. {ggplot2} is one of today's most powerful data visualisation suite. In this tutorial we will learn the underlying philosophy behind {ggplot2}: the Grammar of Graphics. We will see how all types of graphs such as histograms, scatterplots, boxplots, probability densities etc. can be specified by a small set of shared parameters, and how understanding what these parameters are and how to use them will allow you to seamlessly produce powerful and complex graphs to better understand your data.
