Automating exploratory plots with ggplot2 and purrr

In this post I show an example of how to automate the process of making many exploratory plots in ggplot2 with multiple continuous response and explanatory variables. To loop through both x and y variables involves nested looping. In the latter section of the post I go over options for saving the resulting plots, either together in a single document, separately, or by creating combined plots prior to saving.

I currently work as an applied statistician in aviation and aeronautics. In a previous role as a consulting statistician in academia I created and taught R workshops for applied science graduate students who are just getting started in R, where my goal was to make their transition to a programming language as smooth as possible. See these workshop materials at my website.
