Letter Value 'Boxplots'

Implements the letter value 'boxplot' which extends the standard 'boxplot' to deal with both larger and smaller number of data points by dynamically selecting the appropriate number of letter values to display.



Travis-CI Build Status

Letter value plots are an alternative to boxplots which extend the number of "letter value" statistics used. For large datasets, this gives you more information about the tail behaviour and displays fewer "outliers".


You can install lvplot from github with:

# install.packages("devtools")
