Data for Everybody

  • Thomas Rahlf


The type and scope of data, our attitudes towards them, and their availability have fundamentally changed in recent years. Never before has there been more data than today. Never have they been so readily available. And never have there been greater opportunities for analysis, preparation, and presentation. So-called infographics, frequently animated and interactive, are spreading through the Internet. Genuine, standard-setting offerings are based on the work of extensive teams of experts and become research subjects themselves. In this book, all data are visualised using the free statistical software R. Getting started is easier than formany other programming languages, since R is specifically designed for data and statistics, and for their visualisation.
