Graphical objects for ade4 functions (and more)


This package was created to replace graphics functionalities of the ade4 package and to offer customizable representations of data and result analysis.

Graphics are objects of S4 class, which can be displayed but also stored for latter modifications. Those modifications can be graphical changes, but also superposition or juxtaposition of various graphical objects (creating an other type of object). Each object will contain graphical parameters and instructions for the display (calls, positions, etc.) and the data set used. Sometimes data is heavy, due to its size for example. Two storing systems exist:

This new system is based on the lattice package and grid graphics.

A lot of classes were implemented. Two superclass structures the architecture in class. Simple and complex graphics are distinguished in the former version:

5 subclasses inherits from the superclass abstract ADEg:
