Last month, I wrote a post discussing dynamite plots, noting that they’re not considered to be especially good at presenting information. I got a little bit of flak for it, from people for and against dynamite plots. This post shows a different method of showing a point and an error bar. If you’re going to do it, why not make it look like something cool. A TIE fighter maybe?
Values <- c(1,2,5,4)How much cooler is that? gitHub. Remember to acknowledge me when you use in all your papers/books/theses.
Errors <- c(0.25, 0.5, 0.33, 0.12)
dummyNames <- paste("Trial", 1:4)
TIEplot(1:4, Values, Errors, names = dummyNames, ylim = c(0,6))
