I’m giving a talk tomorrow at the Edinburgh R usergroup (EdinbR) on how to get started building interactive charts in R. I’ll talk about rCharts as a great general entry point to quickly generating interactive charts, and also the newer htmlwidgets movement, allowing interactive charts to be more easily integrated with RMarkdown and Shiny. I also tried to throw in a decent amount of Edinburgh-related examples along the way.

I’ve since spun out what started as a simple example for the talk into a live web app, viewable at blackspot.org.uk. Here I’m looking at Edinburgh Open Data from the county council of vehicle collisions in the city. It’s still under development and will be my first real project in Shiny, but already has started to come together quite nicely.

The other speaker for the session is Alastair Kerr (head of bioinformatics at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell Biology here in Edinburgh), and he’ll be giving a beginner’s guide to the Shiny web framework. All in all it should be a great meeting, if you’re nearby do come along!
