dataAnim

A R package to generate animations for simple data wrangling operations.

Installation

This packages can be installed by using the devtools package. It is suggested to have the newest version of all the dependency packages and have a relatively new version of Rstudio.

devtools::install_github("chrk623/dataAnim")

This package is still under development, if there are any BUGS please report to Issues.

Note: The JavaScript code may not look very nice at the moment, they will change overtime.

Examples

Left Join

library(dataAnim)
data(datoy1)
join_anim(join_type = "left", speed = 1, x = datoy1$x, y = datoy1$y, by = "Name", show_msg = T)

Inner Join

join_anim(join_type = "inner", speed = 1, x = datoy1$x, y = datoy1$y, by = "Name", show_msg = T)

Full Join

join_anim(join_type = "full", speed = 1, x = datoy1$x, y = datoy1$y, by = "Name", show_msg = T)

Background

This packages was a part of my Masters Thesis at the University of Auckland. Supervised by Anna Fergusson and Chris Wild.

Abstract

In the recent update of iNZight, a joining and reshaping module was introduced. This module provides a tool for users to join and reshape data sets. Though it is not difficult to apply these operations and obtain the result with a tool like iNZight, there is a lack of tutorials or tools that explain the underlying process of these operations in an easy to understand manner. In this report, why these data operations are useful and important will be discussed. Software will also be developed that attempts to teach key concepts associated with joining and reshaping data sets through animations.

The full report can be found at Link.
