So I have this really basic example of using
geom_image. What I would like to achieve is to not plot those images which will have overlap in the graphic based on overlap in pixels between two images or more. Is there some way to perform this?
Is there maybe a way of converting said images into boxes or shapes and first see if there will be any overlap?
See my basic plot below:
library("ggplot2") library("ggimage") # create a df set.seed(2017-02-21) d <- data.frame(x = rnorm(10), y = rnorm(10), image = sample(c("https://www.r-project.org/logo/Rlogo.png", "https://jeroenooms.github.io/images/frink.png"), size=10, replace = TRUE) ) # plot2 ggplot(d, aes(x, y)) + geom_image(aes(image=image), size=.08)
