Horizon on ggplot2

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.

  1. Great post. Appreciate your sharing of the work-in-progress code. I learned a lot more about ggplot tricks from this.
