Lukasz Piwek maintains a resource that shows how the visualization practices developed by Edward Tufte can be replicated in R.
His neat Tufte in R site currently contains examples of the following visualizations
- minimal line plot
- range-frame (or quartile-frame) scatterplot
- dot-dash (or rug) scatterplot
- minimal boxplot
- minimal barchart
- stem-and-leaf display
It’s a living resource, so he’s adding to the collection over time.
