# Draw Multiple lattice Plots in One Window in R (Example)

This article illustrates how to plot several lattice graphics in one grid of plots in the R programming language.

Let’s dig in:

## Creation of Exemplifying Data

The following data will be used as basement for this R programming tutorial:

```set.seed(723645) # Create example data data <- data.frame(x = rnorm(500), y = rnorm(500), group = c(rep("A", 250), rep("B", 250))) head(data) # Head of example data # x y group # 1 -2.4512682 1.22588856 A # 2 -1.0782307 -0.22679003 A # 3 0.1720944 0.05254144 A # 4 0.4277141 2.04637615 A # 5 0.1649821 -0.49608600 A # 6 -1.0664125 -0.94850249 A```

The previous output of the RStudio console shows that our example data has three columns. The variables x and y contain numeric data and the variable group is a grouping indicator.

## Example: Drawing Grid of lattice Plots Using gridExtra Package

This Example shows how to use the gridExtra package to create a grid of lattice plots in R. First, we have to install and load the lattice package:

```install.packages("lattice") # Install lattice package library("lattice") # Load lattice package```

Now, we can create two lattice plots as shown below. Note that we are saving our plots in two data objects called plat1 and plat2.

```plat1 <- xyplot(y ~ x, data[data\$group == "A", ]) # Create plots plat2 <- xyplot(y ~ x, data[data\$group == "B", ])```

If we want to draw these lattice plots in a grid, we need to install and load the gridExtra package:

```install.packages("gridExtra") # Install gridExtra package library("gridExtra") # Load gridExtra package```

Next, we can use the grid.arrange function, which is provided by the gridExtra package, to draw multiple lattice graphs in the same window:

`grid.arrange(plat1, plat2, ncol = 2) # Apply grid.arrange` As shown in Figure 1, the previous R code created a grid of scatterplots created with the lattice package.
