Detailed hands-on recipes for creating the most useful types of graphs in R ? starting from the simplest versions to more advanced

Packt is pleased to announce R Graph Cookbook, a new book that is filled with practical tips and techniques, and will teach readers to draw any type of graph or visual data representation in R. Written by Hrishi Mittal, this book explains all the examples along with corresponding graph images, which makes it easier for readers to know the final results as well as to perform the task as efficiently as possible.

R is an open source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is a GNU project, which is similar to the S language and was developed at Bell Laboratories by John Chambers and colleagues. R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display, which includes an effective data handling and storage facility, and a suite of operators for calculations on arrays in particular matrices.

R Graph Cookbook takes a very practical, hands-on approach and guides users straight into creating graphs in R right from the beginning. Additionally, this book will demystify a lot of difficult and confusing R functions and parameters, and enable users to construct and modify data graphics to suit their analysis, presentation and publication needs. Furthermore, users will learn all about making graphics such as scatter plots, line graphs, bar charts, pie charts, dot plots, heat maps, histograms and box plots.

Using this book, programmers will be able to construct multiple graph matrix layouts, summarize multivariate datasets with a single graph, form custom graph functions to avoid code repetition, make and re-use visual themes for graphs, use fonts and annotations in graphs on Windows, Mac and Linux, combine different graph types to give a better visual summary of complex datasets, present geographical data on maps, and use heatmaps to spot trends and anomalies in large datasets.

Packed with detailed practical recipes and multiple examples, this book is ideal for developers, who are familiar with the basics of R, and wish to learn the best techniques and code to create graphics in R in the best way possible. The book is out now and available from Packt. To read more about it, please visit:
