How to create scatterplot using ggplot2 without grey background in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To create scatterplot using ggplot2 without grey background in R, we can follow the below steps −

  • First of all, create a data frame.
  • Then, create the scatterplot using geom_point function of ggplot2 package.
  • After that, add theme_minimal() function to the ggplot function.

Create the data frame

Let's create a data frame as shown below −

 Live Demo

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
df<-data.frame(x,y)
df

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

        x         y
1  -0.12641811  1.95757659

Create the scatterplot

Loading ggplot2 package and creating scatterplot between x and y −

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
df<-data.frame(x,y)
library(ggplot2)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y))+geom_point()

Output

Create the scatterplot without grey background

Use theme_minimal() to create the scatterplot without grey background −

x<-rnorm(25)
y<-rnorm(25)
df<-data.frame(x,y)
library(ggplot2)
ggplot(df,aes(x,y))+geom_point()+theme_minimal()

Output
