Polygon, a filled path.

Polygon, a filled path.

Usage
geom_polygon(mapping = NULL, data = NULL,
    stat = "identity", position = "identity", ...)
Arguments
mapping
The aesthetic mapping, usually constructed with aes or aes_string. Only needs to be set at the layer level if you are overriding the plot defaults.
data
A layer specific dataset - only needed if you want to override the plot defaults.
stat
The statistical transformation to use on the data for this layer.
position
The position adjustment to use for overlappling points on this layer
...
other arguments passed on to layer. This can include aesthetics whose values you want to set, not map. See layer for more details.
Aesthetics

[results=rd,stage=build]{ggplot2:::rd_aesthetics("geom", "polygon")} # When using geom_polygon, you will typically need two data frames: # one contains the coordinates of each polygon (positions), and the # other the values associated with each polygon (values). An id # variable links the two together

ids <- factor(c("1.1", "2.1", "1.2", "2.2", "1.3", "2.3"))

values <- data.frame( id = ids, value = c(3, 3.1, 3.1, 3.2, 3.15, 3.5) )

positions <- data.frame( id = rep(ids, each = 4), x = c(2, 1, 1.1, 2.2, 1, 0, 0.3, 1.1, 2.2, 1.1, 1.2, 2.5, 1.1, 0.3, 0.5, 1.2, 2.5, 1.2, 1.3, 2.7, 1.2, 0.5, 0.6, 1.3), y = c(-0.5, 0, 1, 0.5, 0, 0.5, 1.5, 1, 0.5, 1, 2.1, 1.7, 1, 1.5, 2.2, 2.1, 1.7, 2.1, 3.2, 2.8, 2.1, 2.2, 3.3, 3.2) )

# Currently we need to manually merge the two together datapoly <- merge(values, positions, by=c("id"))

(p <- ggplot(datapoly, aes(x=x, y=y)) + geom_polygon(aes(fill=value, group=id)))

# Which seems like a lot of work, but then it's easy to add on # other features in this coordinate system, e.g.:

stream <- data.frame( x = cumsum(runif(50, max = 0.1)), y = cumsum(runif(50,max = 0.1)) )

p + geom_line(data = stream, colour="grey30", size = 5)

# And if the positions are in longitude and latitude, you can use # coord_map to produce different map projections.
