ggmagnify, an R package, enhances ggplot visualizations by adding a 'magnifying glass' effect. It allows for the creation of magnified insets to highlight important areas of plots, offering flexible customization options like borders, shadows, and shapes (rectangular, elliptical, convex hull, arbitrary). The package, installable from GitHub or r-universe, provides functions to specify both the target region and the inset location using coordinates. The comprehensive examples cover various use cases, including faceting and maps, illustrating ggmagnify's capability to accentuate data points or regions for increased clarity in ggplot graphics.
