## Introduction to ggplot CRAN

ggplot2 is a plotting system for R. It is a thin layer over the graphics of R, but with great power in defaults and convenience. ggplot is a plotting system for R. Querying and manipulating data, setting aesthetic mappings and calculating data points is all done using the grammar of graphics. It’s not easy to use but with practice almost anyone can master it! Once you do, the results are amazing and you will never look back! The ggplot2 package takes the basic principles of the Leland Wilkinson’s grammar of graphics and extends them significantly. It provides a range of efficient and effective tools to create static and interactive plots that allow users to layer on data using higher-level abstractions than the base plotting system in R. This talk will give an overview of the package and its capabilities, focusing on its implementation details. ggplot2 is a plotting system for R based on the grammar of graphics, a system for declaratively creating graphics. ggplot2 is a system for declaratively creating graphics, based on The Grammar of Graphics. You provide the data, tell ggplot2 how to map variables to aesthetics, what graphical primitives to use, and it takes care of the details. The core implementation is written in R using R’s native implementation of LATEX rendering via rsvg. A plotting system for R. It provides a a sophisticated grammar of graphics that covers many common graphics in a consistent form, along with functions for a wide range of technical devices such as shading visual effects, arrows, statistical transformation and numerical computation. ggplot is a data visualization system for R. It does not require the developer to specify a final plot using the same code used to generate the plots, unlike other systems such as ggplot2 . Instead, ggplot defines an internal coordinate system, allows the user to specify mappings between that coordinate space and data projected onto it, and performs a number of aggregation operations to calculate this projection. The ggplot2 package is a plotting system for R, based on the Grammar of Graphics. It provides a mechanism to describe data in a way that it can be combined with other graphics. One of its aims is provide a unified approach to graphics which allows users to easily combine plots from multiple sources and customize them if desired. ggplot2 is a system for declaratively creating graphics, based on The Grammar of Graphics. You supply the data, tell ggplot how to map variables to aesthetics, what graphical primitives to use, and it takes care of the details. One of the fundamental ideas behind the ggplot2 package is to combine data and statistical graphics onto the same plotting device. We can then think of this “device” as a single graph that saves space and visual clutter.One of the fundamental ideas behind the ggplot2 package is to combine data and statistical graphics onto the same plotting device. We can then think of this “device” as a single graph that saves space and visual clutter. ggplot2 is a plotting system for R. It is designed to be a quick and easy way to create common plots. The data visualizations produced by ggplot2 include scatterplots, histograms, boxplots, density plots and rug plots, maps and data frames.
