An implementation of the Grammar of Graphics
Hadley Wickham <>, Winston Chang <>
An implementation of the grammar of graphics in R. It combines the advantages of both base and lattice graphics: conditioning and shared axes are handled automatically, and you can still build up a plot step by step from multiple data sources. It also implements a sophisticated multidimensional conditioning system and a consistent interface to map data to aesthetic attributes. See the ggplot2 website for more information, documentation and examples.

ggplot2 is absolutely excellent, with much aesthetically appealing default features compared to the built-in graphic system. Moreover, the adoption of the intuitive grammar structure makes things...
I have produced many complex graphics with both ggplot and lattice. One recent example required 3 seconds in lattice and 15 seconds in ggplot. In general, ggplot seems to be about 5 times slower...
The standard graphics package is great and quick to make simple figures like plot(x, y), hist(x), etc. However, as soon as you want to split your data according to one or more factors (e.g. different...
It took me a while to get my head wrapped around the grammar of graphics that orgnizes ggplot2, but it was well worth it. It's an extremely well thought out package. The result is very powerful...
I happened to run across a presentation of ggplot2 at roughly the same time I needed just what it supplies best: a visually stunning way to VERY QUICKLY look through data in an exploratory sense...
ggplot2 definitely gets a lot of things right when it comes to statistical graphics. It provides a powerful system that can generate a series of complicated plots with a single command or build them...
This package is quite simply the best graphics package available for R -- and arguably the best statistical graphics package for any language. ggplot2 has two features that put it head and...
