I'm a data scientist in the financial industry, and I've seen a variety of business problems. And many times in data projects, descriptive graphs can provide great insight into complex datasets, and R is an industry-leading programming language to create these graphs. In this course, we're going to create graphs utilizing only base R graphics, the visuals built into R without having to download any packages. Some of the major topics we'll cover include creating a bar chart, creating a line and area chart, as well as producing statistical graphs such as histogram and scatterplot. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create beautiful visualizations and communicate your findings to an audience. No prior is experience is required for this course. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn R with Creating Visualizations in Base R Graphics course, at Pluralsight.
