explainPlotSPC {aqp} R Documentation

## Visual Explanation for `plotSPC`

### Description

Create a visual explanation for the many arguments to `plotSPC`. Call this function instead of `plotSPC`, all objects after `x` are passed on to `plotSPC`. Nearly all of the figures in the Introduction to SoilProfileCollection Objects tutorial are created with this function.

### Usage

```explainPlotSPC(x, ...)
```

### Arguments

 `x` a `SoilProfileCollection` object `...` arguments passed to `plotSPC`

### Value

a list of internally-used ordering vectors and graphical offsets / scaling factors

### Author(s)

D.E. Beaudette

`plotSPC`

### Examples

```
# sample data
data(sp4)
depths(sp4) <- id ~ top + bottom

# proposed vector of relative positions, overlap likely
pos <- c(1, 1.1, 3, 4, 5, 5.2, 7, 8, 9, 10)

# try it
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=pos)

# attempt to fix using an integer sequence, short-circut will prevent adjustments
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=fixOverlap(1:10))

# attempt to adjust using defaults
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=fixOverlap(pos))

# attempt to adjust and tinker with defaults
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=fixOverlap(pos, adj = 0.2))

set.seed(10101)
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=fixOverlap(pos, thresh = 0.7))

pos <- c(1, 2, 3, 3.3, 5, 5.1, 5.5, 8, 9, 9.1)

# tinker
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=pos)
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=fixOverlap(pos))
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=fixOverlap(pos, thresh = 0.7))
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=fixOverlap(pos, thresh=0.7, adj = 0.2))

# no solution possible given these constraints
explainPlotSPC(sp4, name='name', relative.pos=fixOverlap(pos, thresh=1, adj = 0.2))

```
