By

I was pleasantly surprised when somebody shared my traveling salesman animation to reddit and the post made it all the way to reddit's default front page (i.e. the top 25). The gif racked up over 1.3 million pageviews on Imgur, a testament to reddit's traffic-generating prowess. Before the post made it to the front page, though, it was...

## Shapefiles from Isodensity Curves

November 3, 2014
By

Recently, with @3wen, we wanted to play with isodensity curves. The problem is that it is difficult to get – numerically – the equation of the contour (even if we can easily plot it). Consider the following surface (just for fun, in order to illustrate the idea) > f=function(x,y) x*y+(1-x)*(1-y) > u=v=seq(0,1,length=21) > v=seq(0,1,length=11) > f=outer(u,v,f) > persp(u,v,f,theta=angle,phi=10,box=TRUE, +...

## My Commonly Done ggplot2 graphs

October 30, 2014
By

In my last post, I discussed how ggplot2 is not always the answer to the question “How should I plot this” and that base graphics were still very useful. Why Do I use ggplot2 then? The overall question still remains: why (do I) use ggplot2? ggplot2 vs lattice For one, ggplot2 replaced the lattice package
