alignTransect {aqp} | R Documentation |
This function is used to support relative positioning of soil profiles by plotSPC
, based on transect or gradient values typically associated with a site level attribute (e.g. elevation). Gradient values specified in x
are translated to the range used by plotSPC
(usually 1, length(SPC)
) specified in x.min
and x.max
.
alignTransect(x, x.min, x.max, fix = TRUE, ...)
x |
numeric vector, describing values along a transect: distance, elevation, climatic variables, etc.. Typically sourced from the site level attributes of a |
x.min |
numeric, lower boundary to relative position scale |
x.max |
numeric, upper boundary to relative position scale |
fix |
logical, attempt fixing overlapping positions with |

: elements of x
translated to the new relative scale defined by x.min
