'ggplot' Visualizations for the 'partykit' Package

Extends 'ggplot2' functionality to the 'partykit' package. 'ggparty' provides the necessary tools to create clearly structured and highly customizable visualizations for tree-objects of the class 'party'.

How to Use

ggparty tries to stick as closely as possible to ggplot2’s grammar of graphics. The basic building blocks to a ggparty plot are:

  • ggparty() replaces the usual ggplot(). Takes a object of class 'party' instead of a 'data.frame'.

  • geom_edge() draws the edges between the nodes

  • geom_edge_label() labels the edges with the corresponding split breaks

  • geom_node_label() labels the nodes with the split variable, node info or anything else. The shorthand versions of this geom geom_node_splitvar() and geom_node_info() have the correct defaults to write the split variables in the inner nodes resp. the info in the terminal nodes.

  • geom_node_plot() creates a custom ggplot at the location of the node

Make sure to check out the wiki or the vignettes for detailed information on the usage of ggparty.
