Pairs plots (section 5.1.17) are a useful way of displaying the pairwise relations between variables in a dataset. But the default display is unsatisfactory when the variables aren't all continuous. In this entry, we discuss ways to improve these dis...

Here are a few more plotting options for boxplots: Let’s start plotting the full set plot(b\$mod, b\$x) Plot labels for a subset in full set plot (label all points x < -1) text(subset(b\$mod, b\$x < -1), subset(b\$x, b\$x < -1), … Continue reading →

## Further Adventures in Visualisation with ggplot2

April 25, 2011

So I previously took a look at some data of player performance from a computer game. In this post, I’m going to do some further visualisations using ggplot2. The data consists of different types of player character, different roles for those characters, and their overall damage output (the unit here is damage per second, or

## Beeswarm Boxplot (and plotting it with R)

(The image above is called a “Beeswarm Boxplot” , the code for producing this image is provided at the end of this post) The above plot is implemented under different names in different softwares. This “Scatter Dot Beeswarm Box Violin – plot” (in the lack of an agreed upon term) is a one-dimensional scatter plot

## Example 8.11: violin plots

October 26, 2010
By

We've continued to get useful feedback and ideas from our posts on the combination dotplot/boxplot and other ways to craft similar displays. Another notion is the violin plot, which combines a boxplot and a (doubled) kernel density plot. While the ba...
