How to create a graph using R which look like this?

I want to create similar star graph using Rstudio. Inorder to create similar graph which library should I use? 1-s2.0-S0303243418304707-gr6

Hi @Gokul,

How's this for a first quick attempt? You can change what point is the "centroid" of the plot for whatever makes sense in your application.


data <- tibble(
  x = runif(20, 0, 10),
  y = runif(20, 0, 10)

# sample one point to be the centroid of the hub
centroid <- sample_n(data, 1)

data %>% 
  ggplot(aes(x, y)) +
  geom_point() +
  geom_segment(aes(x = centroid$x, y = centroid$y, 
                   xend = x, yend = y)) +

Thank you for your time. This is the one I required, let me see if I can make it using my data.

I tried to create the graph using my data. But it keeps coming errors. I am attaching the file

Could you plot this using date of acq. as x and Bperp as y ?


data <- readxl::read_excel("Sentinel-1 Metadata info.xls")
centroid <- slice(data,1)

data %>% 
  ggplot(aes(`Date of acquisition`, `Bperp(m)`)) +
  geom_point() +
  geom_segment(aes(x = centroid$`Date of acquisition`, y = centroid$`Bperp(m)`, 
                   xend = `Date of acquisition`, yend = `Bperp(m)`)) +

I need one more favour. Actually I tried to do it myself but it didn't work out well and I have less time to fix it. It would be very much helpful if you can show to add all the dates as breakpoints for x axis

Thank you.

Still I couldn't fix this problem and stuck at this stage. I would really appreciate if anyone could fix my issue here

If your date variable is a proper date, and you're using ggplot() for plotting, you can add a scale_x_date() to your plot call and modify how the dates are presented by tweaking the date_breaks = ... argument.


ggplot(data, aes(x, y)) +
  geom_col() +
  scale_x_date(date_breaks = 'day')
