Description

Create a layer of map borders.

Usage

borders(
  database = "world",
  regions = ".",
  fill = NA,
  colour = "grey50",
  xlim = NULL,
  ylim = NULL,
  ...
)

Arguments

database

map data, see map for details

regions

map region

fill

fill colour

colour

border colour

xlim, ylim

latitudinal and logitudinal range for extracting map polygons, see map for details.

...

other arguments passed onto geom_polygon

Examples

if (require("maps")) {

ia <- map_data("county", "iowa")
mid_range <- function(x) mean(range(x))
seats <- plyr::ddply(ia, "subregion", plyr::colwise(mid_range, c("lat", "long")))
ggplot(ia, aes(long, lat)) +
  geom_polygon(aes(group = group), fill = NA, colour = "grey60") +
  geom_text(aes(label = subregion), data = seats, size = 2, angle = 45)

data(us.cities)
capitals <- subset(us.cities, capital == 2)
ggplot(capitals, aes(long, lat)) +
  borders("state") +
  geom_point(aes(size = pop)) +
  scale_size_area() +
  coord_quickmap()

# Same map, with some world context
ggplot(capitals, aes(long, lat)) +
  borders("world", xlim = c(-130, -60), ylim = c(20, 50)) +
  geom_point(aes(size = pop)) +
  scale_size_area() +
  coord_quickmap()
}
