More Interactivity

WithMartin Theus, Simon Urbanek

The basic concepts of interacting with graphics such as selections and queries have been introduced in Chapter 1. There are far more interactions, mostly changing the parametrization of a plot. Several more plot specific interactions have been used in the previous chapter without explicitly mentioning them. Switching a barchart to a spineplot (compare Figure 3.1), a histogram to a spinogram (compare Figure 3.6), or changing a mosaic plot from the default view to the model of independence (see Figure 4.4) are all interactions which should be just a single click or keystroke away, without the need to recreate the “same” plot with different plot parameters.
