R202: Data Visualisation in R

Course duration: half day

Learn about Data Visualisation in R using ggplot2, one of the most popular plotting packages.

About this course

R is quickly gaining popularity as a programming language for statisticians, data scientists and researchers. It has an excellent ecosystem including the powerful RStudio and the Shiny web application framework.

In this workshop, you will explore different types of graphs and learn how to customise them using one of the most popular plotting packages in R, ggplot2 (Data Visualisation).

We teach using RStudio, which allows program code, results, visualisations and documentation to be blended seamlessly.

Join us for a live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from Intersect and the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation.


Learning Outcomes

  • Using the Grammar of Graphics to convert data into figures using the ggplot2 package
  • Configuring plot elements within ggplot2
  • Exploring different types of plots using ggplot2
