The simple staircase plot can be created by using geom_tile function of ggplot2 package. We just need to use the vector or the column for which we want to create the staircase plot in place of x and y as well. For example, if we have a column say x of an R data frame df then the staircase plot can be created as ggplot(df,aes(x,x))+geom_tile().
Consider the below data frame:
> x<-1:10 > df<-data.frame(x) > df
x 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 4 5 5 6 6 7 7 8 8 9 9 10 10
Loading ggplot2 package and creating staircase plot:
> library(ggplot2) > ggplot(df,aes(x,x))+geom_tile()
