In this project, you will learn about using ggplot, specifically ggplot2 (the latest version of ggplot). This program is a plotting package for the programming language R. R is a computer programming language, and it is also an open-source software often used among data scientists, statisticians, and data miners in their everyday work with data sets. The gg in ggplot2 means Grammar of Graphics, a graphic concept which describes plots by using a “grammar.” Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
