Session 3: Data visualization in R (Advanced)
Workshop type: Practical
Number of places: 40 participants
For our third workshop, we will continue with Cédric Scherer to take our ggplot skills to the next level! For this advanced user session, Cédric will challenge even those of us with ample ggplot experience. He will introduce us to a mixture of advanced plotting options, including spatial maps and animated graphs, to make us into all-round data-viz experts.
As with the previous session, this advanced session will be a practical tutorial with live coding, and an RMarkdown document containing the workshop’s code will be provided to follow along more easily.
As this is the advanced user session, we require participants to either take our beginner workshop (session 2) first, or have considerable plotting experience using ggplot in R.
