New to googleVis? The package provides an interface between R and the Google Charts Tools, allowing you to create interactive web charts from R without uploading your data to Google. The charts are displayed by default via the R internal help browser.

Visit the examples of all googleVis charts on CRAN and review the vignettes.


  1. Hi, I would like to know how I can possibly control the legend size/location on the top right plot. Thank you very much.

  2. With the current version (0.1.9) of ChainLadder we don't have that option. However, you find the underlying R code on GitHub, see line 410 onwards.

  4. See the help file to MackChainLadder for more details, but also the references given there, in particular the original Mack paper
