Course Level: Intermediate

This is a one-day intensive course on advanced graphics with R. The standard plotting commands in R are known as the base graphics, but are starting to show their age. In this course, we cover more advanced graphics packages - in particular, ggplot2. The ggplot2 package can create advanced and informative graphics. This training course stresses understanding - not just one off R scripts. By the end of the session, participants will be familiar with themes, scales and facets, as well as the wider ggplot2 world of packages.
