ggbrick in CRAN

Dan Oehm notes another brick in the wall:

If you’re looking for something a little different, ggbrick creates a ‘waffle’ style chart with the aesthetic of a brick wall. The usage is similar to geom_col where you supply counts as the height of the bar and a fill for a stacked bar. Each whole brick represents 1 unit. Two half bricks equal one whole brick.

It has been available on Git for a while, but recently I’ve made some changes and it now has CRAN’s tick of approval.

Click through to see how you can use it. This style of waffle chart, in the right scenario, can be quite useful, providing a high-level view and also giving you some idea of fine-grained magnitudes. H/T R-Bloggers.
