Abstract

HERE ARE MANY GRAPHICAL METHODS that can be demonstrated with little or no explanation. You are likely familiar with histograms and scatterplots. Many options in R have improved on these in interesting and useful ways. The ability to produce statistical graphics is a clear strength of R. Graphics commands can produce files of a variety of file formats. All of the figures in this book were produced in this manner, for example. We begin with a discussion of the basics. Later sections of this chapter demonstrate a variety of more complex procedures available to us.
