Abstract

The USDA [Pomological Watercolor Collection](https://usdawatercolors.nal.usda.gov/pom/home.xhtml) contains thousands of images documenting fruit and nut varieties. We will use R Markdown to explore these remarkable paintings. Parameters to the report will control the analysis; a single source document produces many different outputs. We will show how RStudio Connect can manage multiple variations of that report.
