Visualizing Data with R and ggplot2 (video w/ slides)

December 18, 2009

On December 3, 2009 I presented a brief talk at the NYC R meetup on how to create data visualizations with R using the immensely powerful ggplot2 package. The talk is very light on motivation but heavy on examples, so it may be more useful to those with some R and/or ggplot2 experience. The speaker that preceded me, Harlan Harris, provided a much more robust introduction to ggplot2; his slides are available here (requires OpenOffice) and I highly recommend them to anyone interested in learning the grammar of graphics and ggplot2.

UPDATE: Harlan’s talk is now available online as well, and is embedded below my talk after the jump–enjoy!

UPDATE II: I have invested in VCASMO to be able sync the slides with the video. I have updated the presentations below, and look forward to using this technology again for the January NYC R meetup.

I would be great if we could get one of those nifty video and slide syncs for the meetup talks—but until then—tThe slides and video are available after the jump, and I highly recommend viewing them in full-screen mode to get the most out of the slides—enjoy!
