ggplot Tutorial

I liked the following ggplot2 tutorial which is featured in Gabriela de Queiroz’s blog called unbiasedestimator. The tutorial looks very neatly presented and I’m sure that it will be very helpful to anyone just getting started with ggplot2 before they jump into ggplot2: Elegant Graphics for Data Analysis by Hadley Wickham or R Graphics Cookbook by Winston Chang.

The tutorial is very nicely formatted with code in bold highlighting  parts that change something in the plot. Overall, the tutorial explains how to use qplot() although it does have a longer example using ggplot() to make survival curves.

Check it out!


Good tutorial about the R package.

“ggplot2 is an R package for producing statistical, or data, graphics, but it is unlike most other graphics packages because it has a deep underlying grammar. [..]”
