plot.anchors.rank {anchors}R Documentation

Plot components of anchors.rank objects

Description

Plot components of anchors.rank objects. Currently this only makes a scatter plot if anchors(...,combn=TRUE). For plots of densities of ranks, see barplot.anchors.rank

Usage

  ## S3 method for class 'anchors.rank'
plot(x, ..., xy)

Arguments

x

anchors.rank object

...

for plot

xy

name two columns from anchors.combn to plot (case insensitive, and you only need to specify first three letters of each name); must be a vector of strings of length 2; see Details below.

Details

Each observation in the plot is a subset of vignettes, represented by their index values as originally passed by the formula (see anchors.order for an example/description).

To define the axis of the scatter plot, the columns to choose from include:

"estimated": estimated entropy from cplor model

"minimum": minimum entropy from minimum.entropy calculation

"interval": number of cases with interval (non-scalar) ranks

"span" average span of ranks (including scalar cases)

"max" maximum B or C value for the subset of vignettes

Choose two of the above, e.g., xy=c("minimum","interval")
