How to create facetted scatterplot with scale of X-axis based on the numerical values corresponding to grouping column in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To create facetted scatterplot with scale of X-axis based on the numerical values corresponding to grouping column in R, we can follow the below steps −

  • First of all, create a data frame having at least one grouping column and two numerical columns.
  • Create the facetted scatterplot based on the grouping column.
  • Create the facetted scatterplot based on grouping column with X-axis scale based on corresponding values in numerical columns.

Create the data frame

Let's create a data frame as shown below −

 Live Demo

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Group<-sample(c("I","II","III"),25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x,y,Group)
df

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

       x            y    Group
1  -0.06003068 -0.03152809  I
2   0.25623423 -1.29352676 II

Create facetted scatterplot

Use facet_grid function of ggplot2 package to create facetted scatterplot −

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Group<-sample(c("I","II","III"),25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x,y,Group)
library(ggplot2)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y))+geom_point()+facet_grid(~Group)

Output

Create facetted scatterplot with X-axis values based on numerical values for group

Use facet_grid function of ggplot2 package to create facetted scatterplot with scales argument set to free as shown below −

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Group<-sample(c("I","II","III"),25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x,y,Group)
library(ggplot2)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y))+geom_point()+facet_grid(~Group,scales="free")

Output
