Size scale.

Usage

scale_size_continuous(..., range = c(1, 6))

scale_size(..., range = c(1, 6))

scale_size_discrete(..., range = c(1, 6))

Arguments

range
a numeric vector of length 2 that specifies the minimum and maximum size of the plotting symbol after transformation.
...
common continuous scale parameters: name, breaks, labels, na.value, limits and trans. See continuous_scale for more details

Description

Size scale.

Examples

(p <- qplot(mpg, cyl, data=mtcars, size=cyl))

p + scale_size("cylinders")

p + scale_size("number\nof\ncylinders")

p + scale_size(range = c(0, 10))

p + scale_size(range = c(1, 2))

# Map area, instead of width/radius # Perceptually, this is a little better p + scale_area()
scale_area is deprecated. Use scale_size_area instead. Note that the behavior of scale_size_area is slightly different: by default it makes the area proportional to the numeric value. (Deprecated; last used in version 0.9.2)

p + scale_area(range = c(1, 25))
scale_area is deprecated. Use scale_size_area instead. Note that the behavior of scale_size_area is slightly different: by default it makes the area proportional to the numeric value. (Deprecated; last used in version 0.9.2)

# Also works with factors, but not a terribly good # idea, unless your factor is ordered, as in this example qplot(mpg, cyl, data=mtcars, size=factor(cyl))

# To control the size mapping for discrete variable, use # scale_size_manual: last_plot() + scale_size_manual(values=c(2,4,6))
