Divides the plane into regular hexagons, counts the number of cases in
each hexagon, and then (by default) maps the number of cases to the hexagon
fill. Hexagon bins avoid the visual artefacts sometimes generated by
the very regular alignment of

# You can control the size of the bins by specifying the number of # bins in each direction: d + geom_hex(bins = 10)d + geom_hex(bins = 30)# Or by specifying the width of the bins d + geom_hex(binwidth = c(1, 1000))d + geom_hex(binwidth = c(.1, 500))
