How to Specify X-Axis & Y-Axis Limits in R (Example Code)

In this article, I’ll illustrate how to change x-axis and y-axis limits in R.

Creating Example Data

data(iris)                         # Example data
head(iris)                         # Display head of data
#   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
plot(x = iris$Petal.Length,        # Create default plot
     y = iris$Sepal.Width)

r graph figure 1 specify x axis y axis limits

Example: Specifying X-Axis & Y-Axis Limits of Base R Plot

plot(x = iris$Petal.Length,        # Specify axis limits
     y = iris$Sepal.Width,
     xlim = c(- 3, 10),
     ylim = c(2.7, 5))

r graph figure 2 specify x axis y axis limits
