How to create scatterplot for categories with grey color palette using ggplot2 in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To create scatterplot for categories with grey color palette using ggplot2, we can follow the below steps −

  • First of all, create a data frame.
  • Then, create the scatterplot for categories with default color of points.
  • Create the scatterplot for categories with color of points in grey palette.

Create the data frame

Let's create a data frame as shown below −

 Live Demo

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Group<-sample(c("First","Second","Third"),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   0.03036902  -1.08989993 First
2  -1.36496321  -1.28054928 Third

Create the scatterplot for categories

Loading ggplot2 package and creating scatterplot for categories based on Group values −

library(ggplot2)
x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Group<-sample(c("First","Second","Third"),25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x,y,Group)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y,color=Group))+geom_point()

Output

Create the scatterplot for categories with grey color palette

Use scale_color_grey function to create the scatterplot for points of categories colored in grey palette −

library(ggplot2)
x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
Group<-sample(c("First","Second","Third"),25,replace=TRUE)
df<-data.frame(x,y,Group)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y,color=Group))+geom_point()+scale_color_grey()

Output
