Recreating graphics from the Fundamentals of Data Visualization

Claus Wilke wrote the Fundamentals of Data Visualization – a great resource that’s definitely high on my list of recommended data visualization books.

In a recent post, Claus shared the link to a GitHub repository where he hosts some of the R programming code with which Claus made the graphics for his dataviz book. The repository is named practical ggplot2, after the R package Clause used to make many of his visuals.

Check it out, the page contains some pearls and the code behind them, which will help you learn to create fabulous visualizations yourself. Some examples:
