Data Visualisation is a vital tool that can unearth possible crucial insights from data. If the results of an analysis are not visualized properly, they will not be communicated effectively to the desired audience. In this introductory course on data visualization in R, you will learn about the different resources you can use to explore and showcase your data visually. Most importantly, you'll learn how to use ggplot2, a powerful and immensely popular data visualization library for R.
R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. R is also extremely flexible and easy to use when it comes to creating visualizations. One of its capabilities is to produce good-quality plots with minimum codes.
In this course, you will learn about the Grammar of Graphics, a system for describing and building graphs, and how the ggplot2 data visualization package for R applies this concept to basic bar charts, histograms, pie charts, scatter plots, line plots, and box plots. You will also learn how to further customize your charts and plots using themes and other techniques. You will then learn how to use another R data visualization package called Leaflet to create map plots, a unique way to plot data based on geolocation data.
