In this project, you will leverage publicly available data to interpret crime patterns within the city of San Francisco.
To complete this project, you should be comfortable manipulating data with
dplyr and visualizing data with
ggplot2. To prepare or
brush up your skills, check out Data Manipulation with dplyr in R,
