Visualization of Regression Models

visreg provides a number of plotting functions for visualizing fitted regression models: regression functions, confidence bands, partial residuals, interactions, and more. visreg is compatible with virtually all formula-based models in R that provide a predict method: lm, glm, gam, rlm, nlme, lmer, coxph, svm, randomForest and many more.

The basic usage is that you fit a model, for example:

fit <- lm(Ozone ~ Solar.R + Wind + Temp, data=airquality)

and then you pass it to visreg:

visreg(fit, "Wind")


A more complex example, using the mgcv package:

airquality$Heat <- cut(airquality$Temp, 3, labels=c("Cool", "Mild", "Hot"))
fit <- gam(Ozone ~ s(Wind, by=Heat, sp=0.1), data=airquality)
visreg(fit, "Wind", "Heat", gg=TRUE, ylab="Ozone")
