How this book was made
Numerous other R packages were used too:
- The diagrams were made in base R, or using the diagram package (Soetaert 2017).
- The animations in the html version were made using the animation package (Xie 2013), and the stills for the PDF version captured by the webshot package (Chang 2018).
- The gifski package was used to create animations in the online version (Ooms 2018).
- The map in Exercise 5.2 (interactive in the online version) is made using the leaflet package (Cheng et al. 2018).
- The kableExtra package was used for nicer tables (Zhu 2018).
- The maps of Australia were generated using the oz package (Venables and Hornik 2016) and plotted using the ggplot2 package (Wickham 2016).
- The display of some data tables in the online version use the DT package (Xie et al. 2018).
- Some plots use the plotrix package (Lemon 2006).
- The NHANES data is provided by the NHANES package (Pruim 2015).
- Some data are from the GLMsData package (Dunn and Smyth 2017).
- The scales package is used to rescale data (Wickham 2018).
- The carousels in the online version (for example, Sect. 33.3) are made using the slickR package (Sidi 2018).
- The dygraphs package (Vanderkam et al. 2018) is used to make interactive graphs (for example, Sect. 12.8.4) for the online version.
- The plotly package (Sievert 2018) is used to make some interactive graphs (for example, in Sect. 12.2.3) for the online version.
- The dplyr package is used in some data manipulations (Wickham et al. 2019).
- The viridis package is used for some colour specifications (Garnier 2018) to make colours easier for those with colour-blindess to distinguish colours, and for better greyscale printing.
- The webex package was used to create the interactive web exercises (Barr and DeBruine 2019).
- The plotfunctions package was used to add images to existing plots (van Rij 2020)
All of this software is free and open source.
Other resources used include:
- The quizzes are embedded using H5P iframes.
- Icons are from iconmonstr and are freely available.
- The images of the cards used in Sect. 15.2 are from https://code.google.com/archive/p/vector-playing-cards/, and are in the public domain.
- The text folding (in the html version) was implemented by adapting advice from StackOverflow.
- The images of dice used in, for example, Sect. 16.2, are from https://www.clipartkey.com/, and are free.
- The cover for the book was made using a free image using Canva.
- The images used in the online book are free (and used according to their guidelines), as listed in Appendix F.
