Facet_grid and Facet_wrap
ramblings on using ggplot
How to create wonderful visualizations in R like the below with multiple panel plots?
Facetting - can be consider as a method to create multiple panel plots based on splitting attributes which we decide.
Using facet_grid
1
ggplot(gapminder, aes(x=continent, y=gdpPercap))
2
+ geom_bar(stat = 'identity', fill='forest green')
3
+ facet_wrap(~year)
Copied!
Using facet_wrap
1
ggplot(gapminder, aes(x=pop)) + geom_density() +
2
facet_wrap(~year) + scale_x_log10()
Copied!
Main difference I noticed was:
*facet_wrap* was working only for a single varaibles, but to create a multple plot in two dimension we had to used *facet-grid*
