R is an open source language for data analysis and graphics. It is platform-independent and allows users to load various packages and develop their own to interpret data better. This video is packed with practical recipes, designed to provide you with all the guidance needed to get to grips with data visualization with R.

We start off with the basics of R plots and an introduction to heat maps and customizing them. After this, we gradually take you through creating interactive maps using the googleVis package. Finally, we generate chloropleth maps and contouring maps, bubble plots, and pie charts.

Style and Approach

This course follows a video-based approach, where each recipe presents unique functions of plots, charts, and maps in a step-by-step manner. With practical hands-on guidance in each and every recipe, you'll easily get to grips with the underlying concepts.

  • Introduces users to basic R functions and data manipulation techniques.
  • Communicate using visualization techniques that are optimal for the underlying data being used as input.
