Table G.1: Geometric layers that supported by ‘geom_facet()’ and ‘facet_plot()’
Package Geom Layer Description
ggalt geom_dumbbell creates dumbbell charts
ggbio geom_alignment shows interval data as alignment
ggfittext geom_fit_text shrinks, grows or wraps text to fit inside a defined rectangular area
gggenes geom_gene_arrow draws genes as arrows
ggimage geom_image visualizes image files
geom_phylopic queries image files from phylopic database and visualizes them
ggplot2 geom_hline adds horizontal lines
geom_jitter adds a small amount of random variation to the location of each point
geom_label draws a rectangle behind the text
geom_point creats scatterplots
geom_raster a high performance special case for all the tiles are the same size
geom_rect draws rectangle by using the locations of the four coners
geom_segment draws a straight line between points
geom_spoke a polar parameterisation of ‘geom_segment()’
geom_text adds text to the plot
geom_tile draws rectangle by using the center of the tile and its size
geom_vline adds vertical lines
ggrepel geom_text_repel adds text to the plot. The text labels repel away from each other and away from the data points
geom_label_repel draws a rectangle underneath the text. The text labels repel away from each other and away from the data ponts
ggridges geom_density_ridges arranges multiple density plots in a staggered fashion
geom_density_ridges_gradient works just like ‘geom_density_ridges’ except that the ‘fill’ aesthetic can vary along the x axis
geom_ridgeline plots the sum of the ‘y’ and ‘height’ aesthetics versus ‘x’, filling the area between ‘y’ and ‘y + height’ with a color
geom_ridgeline_gradient works just like ‘geom_ridgeline’ except that the ‘fill’ aesthetic can vary along the x axis
ggstance geom_barh horizontal version of ‘geom_bar()’
geom_boxploth horizontal version of ‘geom_boxplot()’
geom_crossbarh horizontal version of ‘geom_crossbar()’
geom_errorbarh horizontal version of ‘geom_errorbarh()’
geom_histogramh horizontal version of ‘geom_histogram()’
geom_linerangeh horizontal version of ‘geom_linerange()’
geom_pointrangeh horizontal version of ‘geom_pointrange()’
geom_violinh horizontal version of ‘geom_violin()’
ggtree geom_motif draws aligned motifs
