Ternary plots display three proportions which must sum to 1. It uses a triangular plotting area where each corner of the triangle represents an extreme with a single proportion equaling one with the other two proportions equaling zero. The center of the triangle represents the proportions 1/3, 1/3, 1/3. The ggtern package uses the ggplot2 graphics system to draw ternary plots.
