R-Ladies Sydney

2018/12/20

We thought it might be nice to create our own ggplot inspo? plotsperation? gallery? page, so we gave some local folks the Sydney beaches data with rainfall and temperature (link) and asked them to “make a pretty graph” in no more than 10 minutes.

Here’s what we got! We think they’re fantastic - especially given our imposed time constraint!

Sincerest of thank yous to our contributors: Daniel Falster, Lovisa Lannesand, Sarah Romanes, Adrian Walker, and Wendy Wong!

1 Bugs by Beaches and Year

This plot comes to us from Daniel Falster (Twitter: @adaptive_plant). Daniel asked: How does the distribution of values change across years and beaches? and used ggbeeswarm and all sorts of fun formatting to get the answer!

2 Bondi Bugs by Temperature

This plot comes to us from Lovisa Lannesand (LinkedIn). Lovisa asked: Are there more beachbugs on a rainy day? and concludes that the best day for someone who loves Bondi, but does not love beachbugs, to go there should be a really hot day."

3 Sydney Rainfall by Month

This plot comes to us from Sarah Romanes (Twitter: @sarah_romanes). Sarah plotted average rainfall by month! We think she’s on to something… anyone want to venture a guess about bug levels in May vs. June?

4 Beachbugs by Rainy Day

This plot comes to us from Adrian Walker (Twitter: @walkerthon2). Adrian explored the relationship between rain and beachbugs in this beaut of a violin plot and concluded that more beachbugs come out when it rains! (eww)

5 Bug Levels by Beach

This plot comes to us from Wendy Wong (Twitter: @abc_wendsss). Wendy did a ton of whizzy wizardy (check out those data prep commands!) and then plotted bugs by beach. Note to selves: maybe give Malabar and Little Bay a miss!
