July meetup - data visualisation


This will be a tutorial session where you can improve your R skills! Please bring a laptop. If you do not have a laptop, let us know because we have a few for people to borrow. This meetup will be suitable both for beginners and advanced R users.

We will mainly work with the package ggplot2. For beginners, we will introduce the package and its functions, with exercises for you to practice. We will cover how to make different types of plots, how to make subplots, and how to fully customise your plots.

For advanced users, we will look at some more specialised packages, to make ridge plots, use different themes, arrange all your plots nicely, and make chloropleth maps.

18:00 Meet and mingle
18:15 Introduction to ggplot2, additional packages, and where to find the resources
18:45 Start tutorials
20:00 Optional pub visit at the Earl of Pitt Street

Please have R and RStudio installed on your laptop.

We will use room 2.022 in the Urban Sciences Building.
