Until recently I did not have a practical application in which to use streamgraphs. In fact, I still find the visualisation complex to understand, abstract and a bit too artistic. While I recognise that the strength of streamgraphs is the display of all the time series’ values into one (possibly interactive) plot, the amount of data displayed is massive, with many streams and even more data points. Because of the amount of data displayed Continue reading “Streamgraphs in base::R [e.II]”
This is a very simple script plotting a streamgraphs in R. I wanted to be able to plot a streamgraph in base R, without requiring additional libraries. For example, here I made an interactive streamgraph visualization depicting temperatures measured worldwide in the last 150 years.

Streamgraphs are very pretty!
Streamgraphs are a very catchy way to represent stacked area graphs. Streamgraphs are most commonly used to represent time series data. I encountered streamgraphs for the first time during a coursera data visualization class and I immediately wanted to try to reproduce them.
