To create a graph using ggplot2 without axes ticks and axes labels, we can use theme function where we can use set axes ticks and axis labels to blank with the help of arguments corresponding to each axes such as axis.ticks.x, axis.ticks.y, axis.text.x, and axis.text.y.

To understand how it works, check out the below Example.

## Example

Consider the below data frame −

x<-rnorm(20)
y<-rnorm(20)
df<-data.frame(x,y)
df

The following dataframe is created

              x          y
1  -1.029916441 -0.29560947
2  -0.739082074 -0.23020700

To load the ggplot2 package and create scatterplot between x and y on the above created data frame, add the following code to the above snippet −

x<-rnorm(20)
y<-rnorm(20)
df<-data.frame(x,y)
library(ggplot2)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y))+geom_point()

## Output

If you execute all the above given snippets as a single program, it generates the following Output − To create scatterplot between x and y without axes ticks and axes labels on the above created data frame, add the following code to the above snippet −

ggplot(df,aes(x,y))+geom_point()+theme(axis.ticks.x=element_blank(),axis.ticks.
y=element_blank(),axis.text.y=element_blank(),axis.text.x=element_blank())

## Output

If you execute all the above given snippets as a single program, it generates the following Output −
