PlotWeb {DescTools} | R Documentation |

This plot can be used to graphically display a correlation matrix by using the linewidth between the nodes in proportion to the correlation of two variables. It will place the elements homogenously around a circle and draw connecting lines between the points.

```
PlotWeb(m, col = c(hred, hblue), lty = NULL, lwd = NULL, args.legend=NULL,
pch = 21, pt.cex = 2, pt.col = "black", pt.bg = "darkgrey",
cex.lab = 1, las = 1, adj = NULL, dist = 0.5, ...)
```

`m` |
a symmetric matrix of numeric values |

`col` |
the color for the connecting lines |

`lty` |
the line type for the connecting lines, the default will be |

`lwd` |
the line widths for the connecting lines. If left to |

`args.legend` |
list of additional arguments to be passed to the |

`pch` |
the plotting symbols appearing in the plot, as a non-negative numeric vector (see |

`pt.cex` |
expansion factor(s) for the points. |

`pt.col` |
the foreground color for the points, corresponding to its argument |

`pt.bg` |
the background color for the points, corresponding to its argument |

`las` |
alignment of the labels, 1 means horizontal, 2 radial and 3 vertical. |

`adj` |
adjustments for the labels. (Left: 0, Right: 1, Mid: 0.5) |

`dist` |
gives the distance of the labels from the outer circle. Default is 2. |

`cex.lab` |
the character extension for the labels. |

`...` |
dots are passed to plot. |

The function uses the lower triangular matrix of `m`

, so this is the order colors, linewidth etc. must be given, when the defaults are to be overrun.

A list of x and y coordinates, giving the coordinates of all the points drawn, useful for adding other elements to the plot.

# How does that look like now?
