THIS WORKSHOP WILL BE HELD VIRTUALLY VIA ZOOM. A link will be sent out within 24 hours of the workshop.

This workshop provides a practical introduction to data visualization in R with the popular package "ggplot2" (http://ggplot2.tidyverse.org). The ggplot2 package is a specific implementation of the "Grammar of Graphics" and provides a high-level approach to creating rich visualizations.
