Plotting Fundamentals Chapter

December 24, 2014

(This article was first published on fishR » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I have uploaded a draft of Chapter 3 — Plotting Fundamentals — for the Introduction to Fisheries Analyses with R (IFAR) book (note the new name).  This chapter is meant to be a quick introduction to plotting in base R for plots typically constructed by fisheries scientists (histograms, scatterplots, line plots, plots with intervals (e.g., confidence), etc.).  There is also a brief introduction to setting plotting parameters, plotting multiple plots relative to each other (e.g., side-by-side), and output formats.

A draft of this and several other chapters are available on the IFAR Vignettes page on the fishR site.  As always, you should update to the very latest version of FSA.

Please feel free to send me comments, suggestions, criticisms, etc.  All of these help me make the book and the FSA package as useful as possible.
