Informative Graphics with R

NOTE: We are sorry that we have to inform you, that all tickets for the tutorial 'Informative Graphics with R' are sold out!

Leo Geppert (Fakultät Statistik, TU Dortmund)

This tutorial deals with getting the story in your data across by using good and informative graphs. We will start with some basics, which will enable you to add to the output of existing plotting functions in R as well as produce flexible new graphs. After that, we will briefly cover the human visual system and consequences it has on graphical perception.

Following the fundamentals, we will have a detailed look at graphs for different situations, such as univariate, bivariate, and multivariate data. The focus lies on static graphs, but packages that allow for dynamic/interactive exploration and analysis of data will also be a topic. 

Basic working knowledge of R is required. The tutorial contains multiple hands-on sessions to give you the chance to put the theory into practice, so please bring along your laptop
