ggrepel provides geoms for ggplot2 to repel overlapping text labels.
library(ggplot2) library(ggrepel) ggplot(mtcars, aes(wt, mpg)) + geom_point(color = 'red') + geom_text_repel(aes(label = rownames(mtcars))) + theme_classic(base_size = 16)

This package is an attempt to make direct labeling a reality in everyday statistical practice by making available a body of useful functions that make direct labeling of common plots easy to do with high-level plotting systems such as lattice and ggplot2. The main function that the package provides is direct.label(p), which takes a lattice or ggplot2 plot p and adds direct labels.
Pretty word clouds.
wordcloud package implements a spiraling algorithm to prevent text
labels from overlapping each other.
Force field simulation of interaction of set of points. Very useful for placing text labels on graphs, such as scatterplots.
I found that functions in the
FField package were not ideal for repelling
overlapping rectangles, so I wrote my own.
