TidyX Episode 10: Exploratory Data Analysis & ggplotly

This week, instead of working through someone else’s code, Ellis Hughes and I decided to use the TidyTuesday data set on volcano eruptions and walk through how we might start to approach looking at the data from an exploratory data analysis perspective.

Along the way, we not only show how we approach cleaning the data and creating new features but also touch on the value and ease of using the ggplotly() to quickly construct interactive visualizations from the ggplot2 visuals you’ve already built. These types of visuals provide a useful and interesting way to exploring your data are can be valuable when sharing information with decision makers to assist discussions around how to proceed with further analysis.
