Flipped cartesian coordinates.

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()
