coord_polar()to make the barchart circular. Next examples describe the next steps to get a proper figure: gap between groups, labels and customization.
Add a gap
Lear how to add a gap in the circle. The same technique will then be used to add gaps between groups
Now that all the basic concepts of circularity have been described, it is possible to build a highly customized circular stacked barchart.Code
The web is full of astonishing R charts made by awesome bloggers. The R graph gallery tries to display some of the best creations and explain how their source code works. If you want to display your work here, please drop me a word or even better, submit a Pull Request!
