The little package that could: Taking visualizations to the next level with the scales package
January 31, 2020
Precise axes, proper data transformation, and informative visual data mappings are critical components to any polished visualization. The scales package, the unsung hero behind ggplot2’s scale_* infrastructure, includes functions to help any R user manipulate and polish their visualizations. In this presentation, we will explore the functionality of this small but mighty package: demonstrating its functions for polishing guides, e.g. breaks and labels, managing data transformations, and for mapping aesthetic palettes to data.
