R Question

Increase line width without stochastic bars ggplot

Does anyone know if it's possible to increase the line width in ggplot2 in a smooth fashion without adding random lines that stick out? Here's my original line plot and with size increased to 5:

> ggplot(curve.df, aes(x=recall, y=precision, color=cutoff)) +
> geom_line(size=1)


image 1 image 2

Ideally, the final image would look something like the following plot from the PRROC Package, but I have another problem with plotting from there in that gridlines and ablines do not correspond to the axis tickmarks.

Here I first called

> grid()


and then called

> abline(v=seq(0,1,.2), h=seq(0,1,.2))


enter image description hereenter image description here

Honestly would appreciate any way to be able to draw this curve with a wider line to see clear colors and a grid that corresponds to the axis tickmarks. Thanks!

Here's a sample of the data from cutoff .5 to .7:

Answer

Setting lineend = "round" greatly improves the plot

ggplot(curve.df, aes(x = recall, y = precision, color = cutoff)) +
   geom_line(size = 5, lineend = "round")
