ggplot provides a new system for drawing graphics in R, based on the Grammar of Graphics. It combines the advantages of both base and lattice graphics: conditioning and shared axes are handled automatically, and you can still build up a plot step by step from multiple data sources. It also implements a more sophisticated multidimensional conditioning system and a consistent interface to map data to visual attributes. ggplot (along with reshape) received the John Chambers Award for Statistical Computing.

ggplot is available now from CRAN (install.packages("ggplot")) and more information is available at my website (http://had.co.nz/ggplot) including copies of talks, examples, and a guide showing how to convert your existing lattice code.

To get started I recommend you look at:

I want to provide great documentation, so if there is anything you think I am missing, please let me know.
