Dear Readers of The Chemical Statistician,

While working in my job at the British Columbia Cancer Agency, I learned about a wonderful new data visualization resource from a colleague who works at the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control. I want to share this with you, as I think that it will help you immensely in your efforts to plot data in R.

**Joanna Zhao**, an undergraduate researcher in the Department of Statistics at the University of British Columbia, produced a visual index of over 100 plots using ggplot2, the R package written by Hadley Wickham:

http://shinyapps.stat.ubc.ca/r-graph-catalog/

Click on a thumbnail on the above web page – you will see the figure AND all of the necessary code to reproduce the figure. These plots are from Naomi Robbins‘ book “Creating More Effective Graphs”.

If you

- want to make a good plot in R
- roughly know what the plot should look like
- but could really use an example to get started,

then this is a great resource for you! The following GitHub repository has the code for ALL figures and the infrastructure for Joanna’s Shiny app:
