R

Steph Locke tells us about a way to mock data for R:

Mockaroo is a really impressive service with a wide spread of different data types. They also have simple ways of adding things like within group differences to data so that you can mock realistic class differences. They use the freemium model so you can get a thousand rows per download, which is pretty sweet. The big BUT you can feel coming on is this – it’s a GUI! I don’t want to have spend time hand cranking a data extract.

Thankfully, they have a GUI for getting data too and it’s pretty simply to use so I’ve started making a package for it.

Steph is working on an R package, so this is pretty exciting.

Neil Saunders declutters a complicated visual with a simple scatterplot: Sydney’s congestion at ‘tipping point’ blares the headline and to illustrate, an interactive chart with bars for city population densities, points for commute times and of course, dual-axes. Yuck. OK, I guess it does show that Sydney is one of three cities that are low density, […]

Using ggpairs To Find Correlations Between Variables In R

Akshay Mahale shows how to use the ggpairs function in R to see the correlation between different pairs of variables: From the above matrix for iris we can deduce the following insights: Correlation between Sepal.Length and Petal.Length is strong and dense. Sepal.Length and Sepal.Width seems to show very little correlation as datapoints are spreaded through out the plot area. Petal.Length and Petal.Width also shows strong correlation. Note: The […]
