To create facetted plot with facets in horizontal direction using ggplot2 in R, we can follow the below steps −

• First of all, create a data frame.
• Then, create the facetted plot using facet_grid function of ggplot2 package.
• Use facet_grid function with reversed value of categorical column to create the facetted plot with facets in horizontal direction.

## Create the data frame

Let's create a data frame as shown below −

Live Demo

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Grp<-sample(LETTERS[1:3],25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x,y,Grp)
df

On executing, the above script generates the below output(this output will vary on your system due to randomization) −

         x             y   Grp

## Create the facetted plot

Use facet_grid function to create point chart between x and y based on Grp column −

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Grp<-sample(LETTERS[1:3],25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x,y,Grp)
library(ggplot2)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y,col=Grp))+geom_point()+facet_grid(~Grp)

### Output ## Create the facetted plot with facets in horizontal direction

Use facet_grid function to create point chart between x and y based on Grp column by providing Grp column name before tilde as shown below −

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Grp<-sample(LETTERS[1:3],25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x,y,Grp)
library(ggplot2)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y,col=Grp))+geom_point()+facet_grid(Grp~.)
