R Data Mining Resources

Data Mining using R has been gaining popularity among data miner/data analyst around the globe these days. A report from the Rexer’s Annual Data Miner Survey in 2010 stated that R has become the data mining tool used by more data miners (43%). According to Wikipedia, R is a programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. R provides a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques, including linear and nonlinear modeling, classical statistical tests, time-series analysis, classification, clustering, and others.
