Because I have some plans for an R course in Moodle, and also because I need to do some plots, I looked around in the web to see if there was something new. I found quite a lot, at least new to me. One is the package ggplot2 that may be easier to use than lattice and produces graphs with a different look.
The author is Had Wickman.
# load package library(ggplot2) # generate some artificial data x=1:100 y2=x^2/100+rnorm(100)*5 # create a plot qplot(x,y2,geom=c("smooth","point"))
Here are some links:
ggplot2 the home page for the package with links to videos, slides, etc. The package itself is in CRAN.
He has also written a book on ggplot2.
He has written other interesting packages but I’ll write about them later.
