Course Description

In this third ggplot2 course, we'll dive into some advanced topics including geoms commonly used in maths and sciences, strategies for handling large data sets, a variety of specialty plots, and some useful features of ggplot2 internals.

Plots for specific data types (Part 1) 

In this chapter, you'll explore useful specialty plots for specific data types such as ternary plots, networks and maps. You'll also look at how to use ggplot2 to convert typical base package plots that are used to evaluate the results of statistical methods. Finally, you'll take a look at a couple ways in which you can make and appropriately use animations.
