Arguments

twodviews_ob

object from twodviews()

scores

numeric: the values of the PC scores for which the visualization is called

PC

PC chosen

view

numeric: which landmark configuration will be used to build the shape variation

Value

mat matrix of coordinates associated to the called shape variation

Examples

library(Arothron)
#load the 2D primate dataset
data("Lset2D_list")
#combine the 2D datasets and PCA
combin2D<-twodviews(Lset2D_list,scale=TRUE,vector=c(1:5))
#calculate the shape variation associated to the negative extreme value of PC1
min_PC1<-twodvarshape(combin2D,min(combin2D$PCscores[,1]),1,5)
plot(min_PC1,asp=1)
#calculate the shape variation associated to the positive extreme value of PC1
max_PC1<-twodvarshape(combin2D,max(combin2D$PCscores[,1]),1,5)
plot(max_PC1,asp=1)
