Interesting Article about dplyr

dplyr is a wonderful package for data wrangling. It’s far more useful than pandas at the python front.

There’s also a constant development to make this package even more useful. If you want to see what you can do with the latest version I suggest you have a look at this awesome article with examples.

I’ve enjoyed reading it.

Shiny-App to Explore Covid-19 in Germany

I’ve visualized the Covid-19 data I’ve got from Pavel Mayer in different ways ( see https://www.rstats-tips.net/2020/08/16/additional-visualization-of-covid-19-development-in-germany/ or https://www.rstats-tips.net/2020/08/09/visualization-of-corona-incidence-in-germany-per-county/ )

But I always wanted to make it more interactive. So I decided to build a Shiny-App.

So what can you do with this app?

Additional visualization of Covid-19 development in Germany

Last week I’ve visualized the spread of Covid-19 through Germany using a map-plot.

Now I was asking myself if there’s a better way to show that the rising number of infections these day are other than during the local spreadings in June.

So now I want to plot all of the German Landkreise (similar to counties in the U.S.) regarding the number of new infections during the last 7 days per 100,000 residents using a histogram.
