For a book I just published on data graphs for legal managers, available on LeanPub, I compiled as many extension packages and functions as I could locate (on CRAN and github). Here is a link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ku2gyvlvvq1cyfa/ggExtensions.pdf?dl=0 to a pdf of the results.
If you know of any that I have missed, I would much appreciate hearing from you with a comment. Thank you.
PS If anyone would want to join me in preparing examples of the extensions or functions, somewhat like a CRAN Task View but with vignettes, that might be edifying.
As readers may know, my interests have broadened from consulting to law departments to applying analytic tools to legal data. I program with open-source R and am deep into machine learning algorithms as applied to law firm and law department operational data.
My latest book shows how law firms can use their data, when presented effectively in plots, to make better operational decisions. Law departments, too, can learn from the techniques laid out in the book and they can encourage their firms to improve.
Some 75 types of charts are included, each one showing how different sets of law firm data (65 in all) might be presented. The book also explains a wide variety of graphing choices and techniques.
The book is available for download in PDF format on LeanPub.
If you have any comments about the book or the topic, I would very much like to hear from you. Likewise, if you would spread the word about the book in a newsletter, email, blog post, group, webinar, or tweet that would be much appreciated.
