I recently came across an amazing website makeovermonday. The week 50 data, provided by authors, was related to car accidents. One of the authors generated a dot plot using tableau. I had never generated a dot plot in R so it gave me a good opportunity to explore the dotchrt() function.
How i did it:
The chart show above is generated entirely in R and a bit of editing in inkscape. I have used the data provided by makeovermonday website. The code files, data and svg version of this plot is also available on my github –dotchart.
