R is very strong in scientific visualisation. Karline Soetaert contributed to R’s visualisation capabilities by two types of packages:

  • The packages shape and diagram are suitable for displaying the structure of environmental models, or to create flow diagrams.
  • Three packages were developed to visualise (multi-dimensional) data. The basic packages are plot3D and plot3Drgl. Derived from these is R-package Oceanview. Visit the OceanView graphics gallery to see what these packages are able to do!
