R Data Visualization - Basic Plots, Maps, and Pie Charts

Video Description

Master the visualization capabilities of R to build interactive graphs, plots, and Pie charts.

About This Video

  • Generate various plots in R using the basic R plotting techniques

  • Utilize R packages to add context and meaning to your data

  • Design interactive visualizations and integrate them on your website or blog

  • In Detail

    R is an open source language for data analysis and graphics. It is platform-independent and allows users to load various packages as well as develop their own packages to interpret data better.This video is packed with practical recipes, designed to provide you with all the guidance needed to get to grips with data visualization with R.

    We start - off with the basics of R plots and an introduction to heat maps and customizing them. After this, we gradually take you through creating interactive maps using the googleVis package. Finally, we generate choropleth maps and contouring maps, bubble plots, and pie charts.
