Best TidyTuesday 2019

Here are my favorite visualizations of the #TidyTuesday challenge in 2019 (from those I've seen and which I remember). I present my personal top 3 in terms of design and storytelling.

Merry (White?) Christmas!

At the end of the year, I explore the history of snow cover and white Christmas in Berlin. I wish you a merry Christmas and wonderful holidays 2019!

My Contributions to the First 30DayMapChallenge

I spontaneously participated in the first edition of the #30DayMapChallenge with the goal to create one map each day of November. I managed to contribute 28 days, resulting in many more maps and a steep learning curve in using R and ggplot2 for geodata.

Visualizing Temperatures in Berlin with Bar Chart Races

You have seen Bar Chart Races. You have seen Bar Chart Races of Bar Chart Races. Here are some more visualizing monthly temperatures in Berlin! Yes, I jumped on the hype train. Of course, using {ggplot2} and {gganimate}.

Workshop Announcements 2019/20

I got the opportunity to teach some workshops in the next few months—one 1-day and two 1-week workshops on data exploration and visualization in Berlin and Sicily! 🎉

A ggplot2 Tutorial for Beautiful Plotting in R

An extensive tutorial containing a general introduction to ggplot2 as well as many examples how to modify a ggplot, step by step. It covers several topics such as different chart types, themes, design choices, plot combinations, and modification of axes, labels, and legends, custom fonts, interactive charts and many more.
