Shiny Apps and Data Presentation
Data are usually collected in a raw format and, no matter how well processed and analyzed, results should be presented in a plain and simple way in order to make them accessible for everyone. Unfortunately, the potential of effective data presentation is all too often not fully exploited. Yet, presentation is crucial as it illustrates the actual outcome of research. If not effectively visualized, we waste a great opportunity to build credibility, attract and sustain the interest of readers, and make large amounts of information easily accessible. Here, we introduce Shiny Apps as a powerful and highly flexible tool for interactive data presentation in the world wide web.
