## Usage

coord_flip(xlim = NULL, ylim = NULL, expand = TRUE)

## Arguments

- xlim
- Limits for the x and y axes.
- ylim
- Limits for the x and y axes.
- expand
- If
`TRUE`

, the default, adds a small expansion factor to
the limits to ensure that data and axes don't overlap. If `FALSE`

,
limits are taken exactly from the data or `xlim`

/`ylim`

.

## Description

Flipped cartesian coordinates so that horizontal becomes vertical, and
vertical, horizontal. This is primarily useful for converting geoms and
statistics which display y conditional on x, to x conditional on y.

## Examples

# Very useful for creating boxplots, and other interval
# geoms in the horizontal instead of vertical position.
ggplot(diamonds, aes(cut, price)) +
geom_boxplot() +
coord_flip()

h <- ggplot(diamonds, aes(carat)) +
geom_histogram()
h

**`stat_bin()` using `bins = 30`. Pick better value with `binwidth`.**
h + coord_flip()

**`stat_bin()` using `bins = 30`. Pick better value with `binwidth`.**
h + coord_flip() + scale_x_reverse()

**`stat_bin()` using `bins = 30`. Pick better value with `binwidth`.**
# You can also use it to flip line and area plots:
df <- data.frame(x = 1:5, y = (1:5) ^ 2)
ggplot(df, aes(x, y)) +
geom_area()

last_plot() + coord_flip()
