GeomTrans {DescTools} | R Documentation |
This function transforms geometric structures by translating, scaling and/or rotating them.
GeomTrans(x, y = NULL, trans = 0, scale = 1, theta = 0)
x , y |
vectors containing the coordinates of the vertices of the polygon
, which has to be transformed. The coordinates can be passed in a plotting structure (a list with x and y components), a two-column matrix, .... See |
trans |
a vector of two values for the translation in x-, resp. y-direction. If only one value is supplied it will be recycled. |
scale |
a vector of two values for the scaling factor in x-, resp. y-direction. If only one value is supplied it will be recycled. |
theta |
angle of the rotation in radians starting from 3 o'clock counterclockwise. |
The function invisibly returns a list of the coordinates for the transformed shape(s).
