This is the third set of exercises on networks in which we practice the functions for graph structure, using package igraph. The first and second part are available here: Part 1 Part 2 If you don’t have package already installed, install it using the following code: install.packages(“igraph”) and load it into the session using the […]

## Replicating Plots – Boxplot Exercises

R’s boxplot function has a lot of useful parameters allowing us to change the behaviour and appearance of the boxplot graphs. In this exercise we will try to use those parameters in order to replicate the visual style of Matlab’s boxplot. Before trying out this exercise please make sure that you are familiar with the […]

## Advanced Base Graphics Exercises

Being able to visualize information through plots is essential for a statistic analysis. A simple and clean graph can explain much more than words. In this set of exercises you will test and learn advanced graphic arguments. Before you start check the documentation for the following functions: plot, points, abline, title, legend ,par (including all the arguments), mfrow and layout For […]

## Lattice exercises – part 2

In this set of exercises we will use lattice package. Firstly, we have to install this package with command install.packages(“lattice”) and then we will call it library(lattice) . Lattice package permits us to create univariate, bivariate and trivariate plots. For this set of exercises we will see trivariate plots. We will use a dataset example […]

## Lattice exercises – part 1

In the exercises below we will use the lattice package. First, we have to install this package with install.packages(“lattice”) and then we will call it library(lattice) . The Lattice package permits us to create univariate, bivariate and trivariate plots. For this set of exercises we will see univariate and bivariate plots. We will use a […]

## 3D plotting exercises

In this set of exercises we will introduce the concept of 3D plotting. Specifically, we will use these commands:image(), contour() and persp(). For these exercises, you need to have a basic understanding of R objects and functions, in particular some knowledge about matrix . This set is the fourth set of exercises is a series […]

## Graphics parameters exercises

In the exercises below we practice how to personalize graphics parameters, how to produce different plots at the same time and how to save a plot in a file. We will use commands such as par and jpeg. We will use the mtcars dataset, provided by R Cran (we can upload the dataset by typing […]

## Customize a scatterplot exercises

In the following exercises we practice how to customize a scatterplot. We will use axis , to add an axis; mtext to add a text; and legend to add a legend. Moreover we practice how to add details in every stage. We will use the mtcars dataset, provided by R Cran (we can upload dataset […]

## Start plotting data!

In the exercises below we practice the basics of visualization in R. Firstly, we use the command: plot . Then we will see how to add information to our plot through command: lines . We will use the mtcars dataset, provided by R Cran (we can upload dataset by type mtcars and then attach our […]
