Webinar: Getting Started with Spatial Data Analysis with R


I am glad to announce that I shall be presenting a live webinar with Domino Data Labs on February 24, 2016 from 11:00 – 11:30 AM PST: Getting Started with Spatial Data Analysis with R. If you are interested or know someone interested in learning how to manipulate spatial and spatial-temporal data with R, please send them along. Here is the abstract:

Tracking ggplot2 Extensions for Data Visualization



The purpose of this blog post is to inform R users of a website that I created to track and list ggplot2 extensions. The site is available at: http://ggplot2-exts.github.io. The purpose of this site is to help other R users easily find ggplot2 extensions that are coming in “fast and furious” from the R community.

If you have developed or intend on developing ggplot2 extensions, submit them so that other R users can easily find them. To do so, simply create an issue or a pull request on this github repository.

Incase you are wondering what ggplot2 extensions are; these are R packages that extend the functionality of the ggplot2 package by Dr. Hadley Wickham. This extensibility mechanism became available in ggplot2 version 2.0.0 released on December 17th, 2015.
