How to save a plot as SVG created with ggplot2 in R?
There are multiple ways to save a plot created in R. Base R provides, metafile, bitmap, and postscript options to copy and save the plots created in R but we can also save the plots created with ggplot2 as an SVG file with the help of svglite package. The ggsave function of svglite package does this job easily and we can also define the height and width of the plot inside this function.
Install the svglite package −
Consider the ToothGrowth data and create a scatterplot between len and dose −
head(ToothGrowth) len supp dose 1 4.2 VC 0.5 2 11.5 VC 0.5 3 7.3 VC 0.5 4 5.8 VC 0.5 5 6.4 VC 0.5 6 10.0 VC 0.5 library(ggplot2) library(svglite) ScatterPlotImage<-ggplot(ToothGrowth,aes(len,dose))+geom_point(size=3) ScatterPlotImage
ggsave(file="Scatter.svg", plot=ScatterPlotImage, width=10, height=10)
This plot will be saved as an SVG in the default folder for your R version as shown above.
