Heatmap of 2d bin counts
Divides the plane into rectangles, counts the number of cases in
each rectangle, and then (by default) maps the number of cases to the
rectangle's fill. This is a useful alternative to
in the presence of overplotting.

- Set of aesthetic mappings created by
aes_. If specified and
inherit.aes = TRUE(the default), it is combined with the default mapping at the top level of the plot. You must supply
mappingif there is no plot mapping.

fortifyfor which variables will be created.
functionwill be called with a single argument, the plot data. The return value must be a
data.frame., and will be used as the layer data.
- Position adjustment, either as a string, or the result of a call to a position adjustment function.
- other arguments passed on to
layer. These are often aesthetics, used to set an aesthetic to a fixed value, like
color = "red"or
size = 3. They may also be parameters to the paired geom/stat.
FALSE, the default, missing values are removed with a warning. If
TRUE, missing values are silently removed.
- logical. Should this layer be included in the legends?
NA, the default, includes if any aesthetics are mapped.
FALSEnever includes, and
FALSE, overrides the default aesthetics, rather than combining with them. This is most useful for helper functions that define both data and aesthetics and shouldn't inherit behaviour from the default plot specification, e.g.
- geom, stat

- numeric vector giving number of bins in both vertical and horizontal directions. Set to 30 by default.
- Numeric vector giving bin width in both vertical and
horizontal directions. Overrides
binsif both set.
TRUEremoves all cells with 0 counts.
