Horizon on ggplot2

August 27, 2012

(This article was first published on Timely Portfolio, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

SocialDataBlog’s kind reference in post Horizon plots with ggplot (not) motivated me to finish what the post started.  I knew that ggplot2 would be a little more difficult to use for the purpose of a horizon plot, but I felt compelled to provide at least one example of a horizon plot for each of the major R graphing packages.  I achieved a good result but the code is not as elegant or as flexible as I would like.  Readers more comfortable with ggplot2, please bash, fork, and improve.
