What you will learn in this lesson

  • What is ggplot2
  • How to make plots
  • How to filter data
  • How layers work in ggplot2
  • How to customize plots
  • How to use RStudio to find errors
  • How to apply themes to plots

We saw in lesson 4 that base R has workable plotting capabilities. But base plots are not that great.

Luckily for us, the Tidyverse comes with a terrific plotting library: ggplot2ggplot2 is probably one of the most, if not the most, consequential library in R.

ggplot2 is a powerhouse and can feel intimidating. In my opinion, ggplot2 is like everything else: much less intimidating once we understand how it works.
