R is an elegant and comprehensive statistical and graphical programming language. Unfortunately, it can also have a steep learning curve. I created this website for both current R users, and experienced users of other statistical packages (e.g., SAS, SPSS, Stata) who would like to transition to R. My goal is to help you quickly access this language in your work. I assume that you are already familiar with the statistical methods covered and instead provide you with a roadmap and the code necessary to get started quickly, and orient yourself for future learning. I designed this web site to be an easily accessible reference.

Case study: A brief review of online visualisation tools that can help There is a growing range of online tools to help users their data. This brief review highlights four online visualisation tools that can help. The links page also links to lots more useful resources. Online tools that can help visualise data (these tools are free to use, but any data uploaded is typically then available on the system for other users) highlighted below include: On the resources and links page, we also link to free software applications and libraries for visualising data, and development languages for more sophisticated data visualisation.

Using R for statistical analyses - Introduction Help and Documentation My Publications See my books about R at my Publications Page: Statistics for Ecologists using R and Excel. Gallery "Spike" map Interactive United States population density map. Average rating: 7.5 (23 votes) Protovis Protovis composes custom views of data with simple marks such as bars and dots. Unlike low-level graphics libraries that quickly become tedious for visualization, Protovis defines marks through dynamic properties that encode data, allowing inheritance, scales and layouts to simplify construction. Protovis is free and open-source, provided under the BSD License. It uses JavaScript and SVG for web-native visualizations; no plugin required (though you will need a modern web browser)! Although programming experience is helpful, Protovis is mostly declarative and designed to be learned by example.

Gapminder Desktop Venn Templates and Venn Diagram Software - Free and no download required with Gliffy Online A Venn diagram is a simple way to represent the relationships between groups of things with a clear, visual display. Let your ideas overlap In a Venn diagram, large circles represent groups of things with a shared attribute. Areas where these circles overlap represent individuals that belong equally to both groups. For example, a Venn diagram with one circle representing things made with yeast and another representing alcoholic beverages would have an overlapping zone where you could find both beer and wine.

Blog Announcement Community ~ gsoc It’s a great news, Gephi has been accepted again for the Google Summer of Code for the 5th year! The program is the best way for students around the world to start contributing to an open-source project. Since 2009, each edition is a great success and dramatically boosted Gephi’s project development.

Data Visualization Review: Gephi, Free Graph Exploration Software I do not often get to play with networks, yet I find them fascinating and full of knowledge gathering potential. The data visualization works of Moritz Stefaner, Jer Thorp, and Mark Lombardi captivate me. I am intrigued by relationships, how we perceive them, and how we can understand them. Gephi, the "Open Graph Viz Platform", is not just for the hobbiest node nerd. It is a hardcore, professional tool for network researchers and other smarty pants. If you know the difference between Yifan Hu and Fruchterman Reingold, then you can use this tool effectively.
