subplots allow multiple charts to be combined with ease. Margins and offsets will need to be modified to ensure labels are displayed nicely. It is complicated, but possible to combine legends across charts—the group aesthetic is required to control this.
- [Instructor] Plotly provides fairly useful tools…for combining charts together to share the same axes.…Let's look at an example of how to do that…in our exercise files.…Let's open up subplots.r…and we're going to minimalize my environment…because I don't need to see it,…and at the top of the script file we load three libraries.…First, the tidyverse, which we evaluate with command enter.…Then, we load the gapminder library which provides us…with the gap minder dataset, then a plotly library,…which we use to create our interactive charts.…
Then, on line five through 12, we're creating ourselves…a new variable called gapminer_continents, and we can see…what we're doing with gapminder on like seven.…We pipe gapminder into mutate_if to convert…integer columns into double columns,…then we pipe into the verb group_by.…We group our data by continent and then by year.…Then, line eight through 10, we're using mutate…to add a couple of new columns.…First, we calculate the population of each continent…by summing the population of each country in that continent.…
Start by learning to manage packages and structure data for visualizations with the tidyverse and the pipe operator. Then there is an important question: Which library should you choose? The course introduces five popular options: Leaflet, Plotly, Highcharter, visNetwork, and DataTables (DT). Instructor Martin Hadley shows how to use these libraries to create scattergeo, choropleth, and geolines maps; stacked bar charts, scatter charts, bubble charts, and heat maps; treemaps and time series charts; interactive networks and graphs; and responsive, interactive data tables. Plus, learn how to customize your visualizations with legends and tooltips, and extract click information for Shiny apps.
