11.60 Text Path Density Plot Text Location


ds %>%
  filter(location %in% c("Canberra", "Sydney", "Darwin")) %>%
  ggplot(aes(x=max_temp, colour=location, label=location)) +
                   hjust=0.2) +
  labs(x="Maximum Temperature", y="Density") +

Using geomtextpath (Cameron and van den Brand 2022) to flexibly add text to a plot, the text can be moved to above or below the line with a change to the vjust= option and how far along the plot the text appears is controlled by hjust=.
