The instructor WILL NOT walk through all the online materials during the scheduled meeting.

This hands-on workshop provides an introduction to the popular ggplot2 R graphics package. It will cover how to create a wide variety of graphical displays in R, using techniques such as layering, mapping variables to aesthetics, working with scales, faceting, and themes. This is an intermediate-level workshop appropriate for those who have been using R for at least a few weeks. You should be familar with all of the material in the R Introduction workshop and have used these skills in your own projects.
