How to create a plot using ggplot2 by including values greater than a certain value in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To create a plot using ggplot2 by excluding values greater than a certain value, we can use subsetting with single square brackets and which function. For example, if we have a data frame called df that contains two columns say x and y, then the point chart by including values of x that are greater than 0 can be created by using the command −

ggplot(df[which(df$x>0),],aes(x,y))+geom_point()

Example

Consider the below data frame −

Live Demo

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

Output

Loading ggplot2 package and creating scatterplot between x and y −

> library(ggplot2)
> ggplot(df,aes(x,y))+geom_point()
