Have you ever had so much fun building a data visualization that it felt like a thrill ride? What if your dataviz actually WAS a thrill ride—a 3D virtual reality rollercoaster through your dataset? In this talk, I’ll show you how to create incredibly engaging and informative 3D visualizations in R, and demonstrate what makes a good 3D dataviz. Using the rayrender package, you’ll see how you can interactively fly through 3D scenes in real-time, without ever leaving RStudio. Learn how you can use code to create 3D structures, plot data, and even make generative art: visualizing everything from the smallest molecule to the vast reaches of space, in only a few lines of code.
