Leveling up your data visualization skills with ggplot2 III: Exploring The Wide World of ggplot2 Extensions


11 a.m. to 1 p.m., June 20, 2024


This three-part series will teach you the skills to refine & expand your current ggplot2 skills so you can generate complex, publication-quality plots efficiently and reproducibly. We will cover: 1) the latest developments in and underpinnings of ggplot2, 2) principles of effective visual design and how to implement these in ggplot2, 3) and the ever-expanding landscape of extensions to create animated, geospatial, interactive, and other varieties of plots. We will assume you have created basic plots in ggplot2, and are looking for ways to level up. These sessions are stand-alone, so feel free to attend any or all of them!

Session 3: Exploring The Wide World of ggplot2 Extensions

There are over 100 packages that extend the functionality of ggplot2 to allow you to make just about any data visualization you can think of! In this workshop we'll cover a few of our favorite extensions, such as for multi-panel figures and animating visualizations, and show you how to find the ggplot2 extension that meets your data visualization needs.
