This post presents a short video that shows an interactive regression application using the rpanel package.
Hadley Wickham’s Crantastic site currently lists 1,531 R packages. This post shows how I have used one of these packages, rpanel, to build an interactive regression tool, similar to the interactive regression tool I built in Excel.
Excel users often add check boxes, sliders, drop down lists to add some interactive capabilities to worksheets. rpanel provides the same type of capability in the R environment. Since a video is worth a lot of text, here’s a short video that shows my interactive R regression application:
rpanel has been developed by Adrian Bowman, et al at the University of Glasgow, Department of Statistics. They have several excellent support documents and scripts at this link.
The script and source data file are available at this link.
Only 1,530 R packages to go!
