11.7 Bar Chart Dodge Labelled Colour Brewer
%>% ds ggplot(aes(x=wind_dir_3pm, fill=rain_tomorrow)) + geom_bar(position="dodge") + geom_text(stat="count", aes(label=comma(..count..)), position=position_dodge(width=0.9), vjust=-0.2, size=2) + scale_y_continuous(labels=comma, limits=c(0, 18500)) + labs(x=vnames["wind_dir_3pm"], y="Count", fill="Rains Tomorrow?") + theme(legend.position="top") + scale_fill_brewer(palette="Set2")
A dodged bar chart is produced when a
fill= option is provided for
the ggplot2::aes() and
position="dodge" option for the
ggplot2::geom_bar(). We can add numeric labels using
ggplot2::geom_label() (as in Section 11.14) or
using ggplot2::geom_text() (as in Section
11.19). Here we demonstrate with
Notice the use of scales::comma() for the labels as should be standard practice.
To tune the plot we’ve moved the legend to the top with the
legend.position="top" option of ggplot2::theme(), increased the
y-axis to fit the label using the
limits= option of the
ggplot2::scale_continuous() family of functions.
