ggrepel provides geoms for ggplot2 to repel overlapping text labels:
Text labels repel away from each other, away from data points, and away from edges of the plotting area.
library(ggrepel) ggplot(mtcars, aes(wt, mpg, label = rownames(mtcars))) + geom_text_repel() + geom_point(color = 'red') + theme_classic(base_size = 16)
# The easiest way to get ggrepel is to install it from CRAN: install.packages("ggrepel") # Or get the the development version from GitHub: # install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("slowkow/ggrepel")
See the examples page to learn more about how to use ggrepel in your project.
