On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the Manitoba.lakes data set which pertains to The Nine Largest Lakes in Manitoba. The Manitoba.lakes data set is found in the DAAG R package. Try to load the Manitoba.lakes data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("Manitoba.lakes"). This may load the data into a variable called Manitoba.lakes. If R says the Manitoba.lakes data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("DAAG") and then attempt to reload the data with library("DAAG") followed by data("Manitoba.lakes"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing Manitoba.lakes at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the Manitoba.lakes R data set. The size of this file is about 179 bytes.
The Nine Largest Lakes in Manitoba
Manitoba.lakes data frame has 9 rows and 2 columns.
The areas and elevations of the nine largest lakes in
Manitoba, Canada. The geography of Manitoba (a relatively
flat province) can be divided crudely into three main
areas: a very flat prairie in the south which is at a
relatively high elevation, a middle region consisting
of mainly of forest and Precambrian rock, and a northern
region which drains more rapidly into Hudson
Bay. All water in Manitoba, which does not evaporate, eventually drains
into Hudson Bay.
This data frame contains the following columns:
a numeric vector consisting of the elevations
of the lakes (in meters)
a numeric vector consisting of the areas of
the lakes (in square kilometers)
