# [R] help using ggplot for contour plot

```Hi R community,
I am trying to do a contour plot of (longitude, latitude, concentration).
This is easy enough using filled.contour.
However, i am trying to do the same contour plot using ggplot, and
The script and data being read is attached.
test_filled_contour_plot.png is what contour.filled gives me.
GF_test.png is the output from using ggplot. Something is going wrong,
but i can't figure out what, and it's doing my head-in....
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Jatin
