Structure and Technical Requirements

  • Thomas Rahlf


Before we address the actual implementation of graphics in R, we will take a closer look at the structure of figures. Two examples for the different perception of graphics will be followed by a definition of graphic elements using schematic overviews that we call the “styling pattern”, based on the term used in graphic design. Then follow explanations of important “ancillary elements” for figures, the used typefaces and symbols, as well as colour.
