2012 Olympics Swimming – 100m Butterfly Men Finals prediction

2012 Olympics Swimming - 100m Butterfly Men Finals prediction Author: Matt Malin Inspired by mages’ blog with predictions for 100m running times, I’ve decided to perform some basic modelling (loess and linear modelling) on previous Olympic results for the 100m Butterfly Men’s medal winning results. Code setup library(XML) library(ggplot2) swimming_path <- "http://www.databasesports.com/olympics/sport/sportevent.htm?sp=SWI&enum=200" swimming_data <- readHTMLTable( readLines(swimming_path), which = 3, stringsAsFactors...

Genetic algorithms: a simple R example

Genetic algorithm is a search heuristic. GAs can generate a vast number of possible model solutions and use these to evolve towards an approximation of the best solution of the model. Hereby it mimics evolution in nature. GA generates a population, the individuals in this population (often called chromosomes) have  Read more »

Genetic algorithm is a search heuristic. GAs can generate a vast number of possible model solutions and use these to evolve towards an approximation of the best solution of the model. Hereby it mimics evolution in nature. GA generates a population, the individuals in this population (often called chromosomes) have a given state. Once the population is generated, the state of these individuals is evaluated...

Text and symbol size in multi-panel figures in R

In R, there are a couple of packages that allow you to create multi-panel figures (see examples here and here), but, of course, you can also make multi-panel figures in the base package*. Below I provide a simple example for creating a multi-panel figure in the R base package with the focus on making the

Blue Jay and Scrub Jay : Using rvertnet to check the distributions in R

As part of my Google Summer of Code, I am also working on another package for R called rvertnet. This package is a wrapper in R for VertNet websites. Vertnet is a vertebrate distributed database network consisting of FishNet2, MaNIS, HerpNET, and ORNIS. Out of that currently Fishnet, HerpNET and ORNIS have their v2 portals serving data. rvertnet has functions now to access
