Improving Plots With ggformula

Sebastian Sauer shows how you can use the ggformula package combined with ggplot2 to enhance your R visuals:

Since some time, there’s a wrapper for ggplot2 available, bundled in the package ggformula. One nice thing is that in that it plays nicely with the popular R package mosaicmosaic provides some useful functions for modeling along with a tamed and consistent syntax. In this post, we will discuss some “ornaments”, that is, some details of beautification of a plot. I confess that every one will deem it central, but in some cases in comes in handy to know how to “refine” a plot using ggformula.

Note that this “refinement” is primarily controlled via the function gf_refine() (most stuff), gf_lab() (for labs), and gf_lims() (for axis limits). Themes can be adjusted using gf_theme().

Click through for several examples.

Visualizing with Heatmaps in R

Anisa Dhana shows how you can create a quick heatmap plot in R: To give your own colors use the scale_fill_gradientn function.ggplot(dat, aes(Age, Race)) + geom_raster(aes(fill = BMI)) + scale_fill_gradientn(colours=c("white", "red")) This is a quick example using ggplot2 but there are other heatmap libraries available too.

Predicting Intermittent Demand

Bruno Rodrigues shows one technique for forecasting intermittent data: Now, it is clear that this will be tricky to forecast. There is no discernible pattern, no trend, no seasonality… nothing that would make it “easy” for a model to learn how to forecast such data. This is typical intermittent demand data. Specific methods have been […]
