library(ggplot2) # producing some data data <- data.frame(x=1:10, y=rnorm(10)) # initiating a plot p <- ggplot(data, aes(x,y)) # plotting it with different labels for both x and y. p + geom_point(aes(size=y)) + scale_x_continuous("x axis") + scale_y_continuous("y axis") # changing the tick intervalls on the x-axis p + geom_point(aes(size=y)) + scale_x_continuous("x axis",breaks=c(1,5,10)) + scale_y_continuous("y axis")
