I really like composite plots, where there’s a top part that describes a phenomenon and a bottom part with a synthetic time view of the overall process.
I’ve recently discovered this beautiful representation of educational differentials by gender, by Sara Lopus and Margaret Frye, and the beauty of this dataviz is that it tells a story on its own. (Click on the link for the publication)
I have used a random generated data to reproduce the graph in ggplot and used
gridExtra package to bind grobs, the top and bottom components.
grid.arrange(top, bottom, heights=c(10,5), widths=c(20), padding=0)
I have saved the map as a .png file png package and used
rasterGrob from package
grid to create a raster image graphical object.
