An article in FastCompany today profiles two websites that excel in telling engaging stories with data: the FlowingData and OkTrends blogs. Both sites often use R for data analysis and data visualization, and have been featured here on this blog. FlowingData regularly posts guides on how to use R to recreate many of its featured visualizations with bubble charts, time series, heat maps, mosaic plots and more. And the folks at OkCupid behind the charts in OkTrends were featured in a GigaOm article on how they use R to tell stories about dating data.
