Interactive Graphics With ggiraph

David Smith sheds some light on the ggiraph project:

R’s ggplot2 package is a well-known tool for producing beautiful static data visualizations that you can include in a printed report. But what if you want to include a ggplot2 graphic on a webpage and provide the ability for the user to interact with the data? The ggiraph package by David Gohel  (available for installation via CRAN). WIth ggiraph, you can take an existing ggplot2 bar chart, scatterplot, boxplot, map, or many other types of chart and add one or both of the following iteractions:

  • Display a tooltip of your choice (e.g. data values or labels) when the cursor hovers over sections of the chart

  • Perform an action (a javascript function you provide: jump to another page, for example) when the viewer clicks on an element of the chart

I like it.

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 […]
