Debt to GDP Ratio – R and SVG

This is a quick tutorial on how we can manipulate a Scalable Vector Graphic (SVG) in R. R does have the ability to save plots, maps and graphics in various formats (including SVG) but this post is more about how you can quickly generate a very effective graphic using R and an external SVG file. The most obvious question is why not use R to do everything. Well R is great and does everything so well it does lack some power when it come to interactivity. Though i will not cover interactivity in this post i will show you how easy it is to generate effect using SVG.
