Welcome

This is the website for “Interactive web-based data visualization with R, plotly, and shiny”. In this book, you'll gain insight and practical skills for creating interactive and dynamic web graphics for data analysis from R. It makes heavy use of plotly for rendering graphics, but you'll also learn about other R packages that augment a data science workflow, such as the tidyverse and shiny. Along the way, you'll gain insight into best practices for visualization of high-dimensional data, statistical graphics, and graphical perception. By mastering these concepts and tools, you'll impress your colleagues with your ability to generate more informative, engaging, and repeatable interactive graphics using free software that you can share over email, export to pdf/png, and more.
