Re: [R] Multiple area plots to share the same x-axis

Use facetting:

sets <- rbind(cbind(set="set1", set), cbind(set="set2", set2)) ggplot(sets, aes(x = time, y = hours)) +   geom_area(colour = 'red', fill = 'red', alpha = 0.5) +   geom_area(stat = 'smooth', span = 0.2, alpha = 0.3) +   ylim(0,40) +
  facet_grid(set ~ .)

Best,
Ista
