Introduction to R and ggplot2 with Scottish Hill Race Data

A photograph of a hill race in Scotland on Kirk Craigs

I have been fascinated by the impact 35 records of Scottish hill racing from 1984 have had following their publication by Anthony Atkinson in 1986.

I have produced a Google Doc to use these data as an introduction to R and ggplot2.

I thought this might act as a microcontent resource for the OERu course in Sport Informatics and Analytics, particularly in regard to the pattern recognition (Using R) and audiences and messages (Visualising data) themes.
