Draw Table within ggplot2 Plot Area in R (Example Code)

This tutorial explains how to add a table within the plotting area of a ggplot2 graphic in R.

Preparing the Example

data(iris)                     # Load example data
head(iris)
#   Sepal.Length Sepal.Width Petal.Length Petal.Width Species
# 1          5.1         3.5          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 2          4.9         3.0          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 3          4.7         3.2          1.3         0.2  setosa
# 4          4.6         3.1          1.5         0.2  setosa
# 5          5.0         3.6          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 6          5.4         3.9          1.7         0.4  setosa
install.packages("ggplot2")    # Install & load ggplot2
library("ggplot2")
my_plot <- ggplot(iris,        # Create ggplot2 graph
                  aes(x = Sepal.Length,
                      y = Sepal.Width)) +
  geom_line()
my_plot

Example: Drawing Table to ggplot2 Graphic Using the ggpmisc Package

install.packages("ggpmisc")    # Install ggpmisc package
library("ggpmisc")             # Load ggpmisc
my_plot +                      # Adding table to ggplot2 graph
  annotate(geom = "table",
           x = 8,
           y = 4.5,
           label = list(head(iris)))
