Session Outline

„A picture is worth a thousand words“ – well, that is especially true when it comes to analyzing data. Visualization is the quick and easy way to uncover the big ‘picture’ in your data. This session goes to show you how lots of compelling visualizations can be produced in the R language with the help of the ggplot2 package and friends – and their usual small effort of coding.

Key Takeaways

  • Even with open-source products like R it is possible to produce compelling data visualizations
  • Applying the Tidyverse philosophy and tools, it is easy to accomplish this with really little effort of coding
  • But – even in this context – sometimes less is more
