Data visualization challenge at the first SatRdays conference

  • First, we wanted to see how similar the methods and packages used by entries would be. Is there a common way of doing data visualizations in R? Or will we see a number of different approaches?
  • We have already ran a very similar contest on the same dataset at our Budapest BI Forum conference a few years ago, where all kind of commercial data visualization software was allowed and used. We hoped that comparing the entries of the two contests would show how far the dataviz capabilities of R progressed.
