The ability to produce meaningful and beautiful data visualizations is an essential part of a data scientist skill set. This course, the first R data visualization course in the series, introduces you to the principles of good visualizations and the grammar of graphics plotting concepts implemented in the ggplot2 package. ggplot2 has become the go-to tool for flexible and professional plots in R. We’ll examine the first three essential layers for making a plot: data, aesthetics, and geometries. By the end of the course you will be able to make complex exploratory plots.
