Comment: ggplot2 graphics library is fantastic (Score 1) 382

by jameshowison (#26374445) Attached to: The Power of the R Programming Language

The power of R is in its libraries, which are often maintained by the best statistical researchers in that area.

Recently I discovered the ggplot2 graphing library, which is a huge step forward for constructing graphs of all types in R. It's very well documented and very actively maintained.

David Molnar writes "Jim Gray, recipient of UC Berkeley's first PhD in CS, has been missing for several days after setting out to sail from San Francisco to the Farallon Islands. The search team has obtained satellite photos of the area where Jim might be, but they need help filtering them. You can help out over at Mechanical Turk: http://www.mturk.com/mturk/preview?groupId=J0XZ58S TDWJZ5QY4F9M0 You look at satellite photos and mark them if they contain anything that might be a sailboat or other foreign object. It only takes a small amount of time, so please consider helping out."

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
