R is one of the most widely used language for data and graph analysis. It is platform-independent and allows users to load various packages as well as develop their own packages to interpret data better. This Learning Path is packed with practical recipes, designed to provide you with all the guidance needed to get to grips with data visualization with R. So, if you’re a data science professional and want to learn about the powerful data visualization techniques of R, then go for this Learning Path. Packts Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it. The highlights of this Learning Path are: Create simple and quick visualizations using the basic graphic tools in R Visualize data using different kind of Maps Generate sunflower plots, hexbin plots, Chernoff faces, and so on Explore network, radial, and coxcomb plots. Lets take a quick look at your learning journey. You will start with the basics of R plots and an introduction to heat maps and customizing them. After this, you will learn to create interactive maps using the googleVis package. You will then generate choropleth maps and contouring maps, bubble plots, and pie charts. Next, you will dive into constructing 3D plots and be introduced to packages such as rgl and animation, which are used to create interactive 3D plots. Moving forward, you will focus on techniques to create word clouds, phase tree, and comparison clouds in R. You will also learn how to use the XKCD package to introduce humor in visualizations. Finally, you will be using the XML package to extract and visualize data as well as using shiny package used to create interactive applications. On the completion of this Learning Path, you will be well versed with powerful data visualization techniques of R that you can incorporate in your applications.
