Graphics And Visualizations In R

This project explores the use of R packages in graphical presentation and visualization of data. The R packages applied include Lattice, Iplots, Ggplot2 and Base graphics. The different packages can be manipulated to produce various outputs such as lineplots, faceted bar charts, 3d scatterplots and parallel line over boxplots as shown in the results. However, to produce a similar graphic, for instance a histogram, the packages require different codes which vary in complexity. Moreover, some data sets can be best presented using a certain package over the others. This project is thus useful not only in presenting data but also in choosing the most appropriate package to be used.
