ratio = 1, ensures that one unit on the x-axis is the same length as one unit on the y-axis. Ratios higher than one make units on the y axis longer than units on the x-axis, and vice versa. This is similar to
eqscplot, but it works for all types of graphics.
coord_fixed(ratio = 1, xlim = NULL, ylim = NULL, expand = TRUE)
y / x
TRUE, the default, adds a small expansion factor to the limits to ensure that data and axes don't overlap. If
FALSE, limits are taken exactly from the data or
# ensures that the ranges of axes are equal to the specified ratio by # adjusting the plot aspect ratio p <- ggplot(mtcars, aes(mpg, wt)) + geom_point() p + coord_fixed(ratio = 1) p + coord_fixed(ratio = 5) p + coord_fixed(ratio = 1/5) # Resize the plot to see that the specified aspect ratio is maintained
