This is a position adjustment specifically for
geom_density_ridges() and related geoms. It
only jitters the points drawn by these geoms, if any. If no points are present, the plot
remains unchanged. The effect is similar to
position_jitter(): points are randomly shifted up and down
and/or left and right.
position_points_jitter( width = 0, height = 0.2, yoffset = 0, adjust_vlines = FALSE, seed = NULL )
Width for horizontal jittering. By default set to 0.
Height for vertical jittering, applied in both directions (up and down). By default 0.2.
Vertical offset applied in addition to jittering.
Random seed. If set to NULL, the current random number generator is used. If set to NA, a new random random seed is generated. If set to a number, this number is used as seed for jittering only.
