Course Description

Interactive graphics allow you to manipulate plotted data to gain further insight. As an example, an interactive graphic would allow you to zoom in on a subset of your data without the need to create a new plot. In this course, you will learn how to create and customize interactive graphics in plotly using the R programming language. Along the way, you will review data visualization best practices and be introduced to new plot types such as scatterplot matrices and binned scatterplots.
