Course Description

Visualization is an essential component of interactive data analysis in R. Traditional (base) graphics is powerful, but limited in its ability to deal with multivariate data. Trellis graphics is the natural successor to traditional graphics, extending its simple philosophy to gracefully handle common multivariable data visualization tasks. This course will introduce the lattice package, which implements Trellis graphics for R, and illustrate its basic use.
