This course offers an introduction to the lattice package, which implements Trellis graphics for R. Traditional (base) graphics is powerful, but somewhat limited when it comes to dealing with multivariate data. Trellis graphics is the natural successor to traditional R graphics, extending its simple philosophy to enable common multivariable data visualisation tasks. This two-day course will illustrate the core principles of lattice using a series of examples. It will also give an overview of the tools needed to customize lattice displays according to individual needs, with particular emphasis on custom panel functions and the more recent concept of layers inspired by ggplot2.
