This is the second in a three-part
series of data visualization workshops jointly taught by the Harvard
Kennedy School Library and the Loeb Library at the Harvard Graduate
School of Design. We will be hosting each workshop twice: once at HKS
and once at GSD.
In this hands-on workshop, we will use the R programming language to import and visualize the data. Using R’s popular ggplot2 package, we will cover basic principles and practices for creating effective data visualizations. We will create a variety of plots using techniques that you will be able to use to visualize your own data.
We want to begin promptly, so please make sure to download and install both of the following prior to the workshop:
- R: https://cloud.r-project.org/
- RStudio (Desktop Edition): https://posit.co/download/rstudio-desktop/#download
Accessibility: The HKS
Library encourages individuals with disabilities to participate in our
events. The workshop location is wheelchair/scooter accessible, and
accessible restrooms are available. If we can make learning easier for
you (e.g. sign-language interpreters, lactation facilities), please
email email@example.com and we will attempt to provide them.
