Grid was used to implement two important general high-level graphics packages, as well as many other specialized packages. One was lattice (Sarkar, 2008), which implemented the functionality of Trellis graphics in R. The other was ggplot2 (Wickham, 2009), which adapted ideas from Wilkinson (1999) to provide another alternative graphics system. Both systems will be discussed later in this chapter. 2 2 51 Principles of Data Graphics A discussion of why graphics are important in statistical analysis and what makes good graphics good is beyond the scope of this chapter, and we refer the reader to Wickham (2013) for an excellent introduction and further references.

For example, selecting rows based on row names can fail if the vector of row names is treated as a factor. 4 for more on strings and factors). Furthermore, when reading in data from a file, character string columns can automatically be converted to factors unless otherwise specified (see Section 5 for more details on avoiding this). A related issue is when factor levels are unintentionally converted into numeric values in place of the original category labels. Checking for these common problems is key if you frequently work with categorical data.

A common error occurs when character string vectors (or, for example, a particular column in a data frame) are incorrectly treated as factors. As they add attributes to a vector, some character string operations may execute incorrectly when used with factors. For example, selecting rows based on row names can fail if the vector of row names is treated as a factor. 4 for more on strings and factors). Furthermore, when reading in data from a file, character string columns can automatically be converted to factors unless otherwise specified (see Section 5 for more details on avoiding this).
