animint {animint2}R Documentation

Create an animint

Description

Create an animated, interactive data visualization. The easiest way to get started is by reading the Animint2 Manual, http://members.cbio.mines-paristech.fr/~thocking/animint2-manual/Ch02-ggplot2.html

Usage

animint(...)

Arguments

...

ggplots and options

Details

This function creates a list with the items in ... and attaches the animint class. It also provides default names for un-named ggplots. The list should contain ggplots and options. Each geom can be made interactive by using the showSelected and clickSelects parameters; each should be a character vector of selection variable names. For example geom_line(clickSelects="country") means that clicking the line changes the value of the "country" selection variable; geom_point(showSelected="year") means to only show the subset of data for the currently selected year.

Value

list of class animint

  duration=list(year=1000), #smooth transition duration in milliseconds.
  selector.types=list(country="multiple"), #single/multiple selection for each variable.
  first=list( #selected values to show when viz is first rendered.

    year=1970),
  ## ggplots are rendered together for an interactive data viz.
