Having Fun with googleVis


In this demonstration, you will learn how to use the googleVis package in R to create a few beautiful interactive charts. The charts created in these exercises are inspired by the work of data guru Hans Rosling. GoogleVis provides an interface between R and the Google Charts Tools, allowing you to create interactive web charts from R without uploading your data to Google. You can check out the latest googleVis news at co-author Markus Gesmann's blog.
