Hi Phillip.
You could try some transformations of your data. Either directly in
scale_fill_gradient or in original data. log transition would be OK but not
with negative data. You could play with some transitions from scales
package. I think that you could also use rescaler function, but I do not
know how.
ggplot(df,aes(x=a,y=c,fill=b))+
geom_tile()+
geom_text(label=paste0(round(b,1),"%"),
size=10,colour="gold")+
scale_fill_gradient(low="red",high="blue",na.value="grey50", trans="log")
Cheers.
