- Provide examples of using R to access VIVO data. Using the toolkit, R programmers will be able to run SPARQL queries from R, create R data structures from VIVO data, and use R visualization capabilities to create additional visualizations
- Create visualizations of VIVO data using R
R provides a rich environment for data processing, visualization and analysis. Along with the R XML package for reading XML (VIVO RDF Schema is a flavor of XML) and statnet, a library for network visualization and analysis, a strong environment for development of VIVO applications can be assembled.
