Display results of a simulation on a map


This function generates an interactive map that let the user visually explore the results of an Antares simulation. By default the function starts a Shiny gadget that let the user which variables to represent.

Object of class antaresDataList created with readAntares and containing areas and links data. It can be a list of antaresData objects. In this case, one chart is created for each object.


An object of class antaresData created with function readAntares containing data for areas and or districts. Can also contains an opts who refer to a h5 file.


Object created with function mapLayout


Name of a variable present in x$areas. The values of this variable are represented by the color of the areas on the map. If "none", then the default color is used for all areas.


Vector of variables present in x$areas to associate with the size of areas on the map. If this parameter has length equal to 0, all areas have the same size. If it has length equal to one, then the radius of the areas change depending on the values of the variable choosen. If it has length greater than 1 then areas are represented by a polar area chart where the size of each section depends on the values of each variable.


If parameter sizeAreaVars contains multiple variables, this parameter determines the type of representation. Possible values are "bar" for bar charts, "pie" for pie charts, "polar-area" and "polar-radius" for polar area charts where the values are represented respectively by the area or the radius of the slices.


If the map contains polar or bar charts, should the different variables represented use the same scale or should each variable have its own scale ? This parameter should be TRUE only if the variables have the same unit and are comparable : for instance production variables.


Used only when sizeAreaVars contains multiple variables. If it is TRUE, then values of each variable are displayed.


Vector of variables to display when user clicks on an area.


Variable to display inside the areas. This parameter is used only if parameter sizeAreaVars contains zero or one variable.


Name of a variable present in x$links. The values of this variable are represented by the color of the links on the map. If "none", then the default color is used for all links


Name of a variable present in x$links. Its values are represented by the line width of the links on the map.


Vector of variables to display when user clicks on a link


LogicalValue, if TRUE the popups will automatically be closed with each click. If FALSE, the popups will stay open.


If type="avg", the data is averaged by area/and or link and represented on the map. If it is equal to "detail", only one time step at a time. In interactive mode, an input control permits to choose the time step shown.


time id present in the data.


If x, contains multiple Monte-Carlo scenarios, this parameter determine which scenario is displayed. Must be an integer representing the index of the scenario or the word "average". In this case data are averaged.


Title of the map.


logical. Select sizeAreaVars using alias ? Default to FALSE


If typeSizeAreaVars is set to TRUE, name of alias. You can find the list of alias with the function showAliases


An optional character vector containing names of parameters. When it is set, two charts are outputed with their own input controls. Alternatively, it can be a named list with names corresponding to parameter names and values being list with the initial values of the given parameter for each chart. See details if you are drawing a map.


List of options that indicates the number of charts to create and their position. Check out the documentation of compareOptions to see available options.


LogicalValue. If TRUE, then a shiny gadget is launched that lets the user interactively choose the areas or districts to display.


List of parameters that override some default visual settings. See the help of plotMapOptions.


Width of the graph expressed in pixels or in percentage of the parent element. For instance "500px" and "100%" are valid values.


Height of the graph expressed in pixels or in percentage of the parent element. For instance "500px" and "100%" are valid values.


A vector of two dates. Only data points between these two dates are displayed. If NULL, then all data is displayed.


Use when you compare studies, can be "union" or "intersect". If union, all of mcYears in one of studies will be selectable. If intersect, only mcYears in all studies will be selectable.


Contains arguments used by default for h5 request, typically h5requestFiltering = list(mcYears = 3)


character timeStep to read in h5 file. Only for Non interactive mode.


numeric mcYear to read for h5. Only for Non interactive mode.


character tables for h5 ("areas" "links", "clusters" or "disticts"). Only for Non interactive mode.


boolean variable size for miniplot


character language use for label. Defaut to 'en'. Can be 'fr'.


logical Names of input to hide. Defaut to NULL


Other arguments for manipulateWidget


compare argument can take following values :


An htmlwidget of class "leaflet". It can be modified with package leaflet. By default the function starts a shiny gadget that lets the user play with most of the parameters of the function. The function returns a leaflet map when the user clicks on the button "OK".
