WVPlots 1.0.0

John Mount announces WVPlots 1.0.0:

Nina Zumel and I have been working on packaging our favorite graphing techniques in a more reusable way that emphasizes the analysis task at hand over the steps needed to produce a good visualization. We are excited to announce the WVPlots is now at version 1.0.0 on CRAN!

The idea is: we sacrifice some of the flexibility and composability inherent to ggplot2 in R for a menu of prescribed presentation solutions. This is a package to produce plots while you are in the middle of another task.

I like this idea:  I know the kind of plot I need and just want to throw something together for myself to give me an idea of the underlying data.

Plotting Diagrams In R With nest() And map()

Sebastian Sauer shows how to display multiple ggplot2 diagrams together using facets as well as a combination of the nest() and map() functions: One simple way is to plot several facets according to the grouping variable: d %>% ggplot() + aes(x = hp, y = mpg) + geom_point() + facet_wrap(~ cyl) Faceting is great, but it’s good to know […]
