Title: Exploratory data analysis with R Lattice Graphics
Speaker: Steven Lockton, Ph.D.
The San Diego R Users Group will be meeting on Wednesday, March 2nd, from 6:00-8:00 PM at the North University public library (details below).
John Chambers, the creator of the S programming language (predecessor to R) once observed that "there is no statistical tool that is as powerful as a well chosen graph." This is a widely held view among data analysts; it motivated the excellent facilities in R for graphing and visualizing data.
In this talk, we will survey a range of graphing capabilities in R. We will start by demonstrating essential basic techniques, such as histograms, density plots and scatterplots (with jittering). We will then explore intermediate techniques such as lattice plots, bubble plots, and other techniques for data that has more than two dimensions. Finally, we will take a quick peek at some interesting advanced techniques, such as GGobi for interactive plots.
We will be serving pizza, so please RSVP to help us get an accurate headcount. Thanks!
