Aug 15, 2007

A review of an rgl presentation by Duncan Murdoch from useR! Meeting. rgl is an R package that leverages the utility of the OpenGL library for high performance graphics. From the rgl webpage “The rgl package is a visualization device system for R, using OpenGL as the rendering backend. An rgl device at its core is a real-time 3D engine written in C++. It provides an interactive viewpoint navigation facility (mouse + wheel support) and an R programming interface.”
