autoPlot {astrochron} | R Documentation |

## Automatically plot multiple stratigraphic series, with smoothing if desired

### Description

Automatically plot and smooth specified stratigraphic data, versus location. Data are smoothed with a Gaussian kernel if desired.

### Usage

```
autoPlot(dat,cols=NULL,dmin=NULL,dmax=NULL,vertical=T,ydir=NULL,nrows=NULL,plotype=1,
smooth=0,xgrid=1,output=F,genplot=T,verbose=T)
```

### Arguments

`dat` |
Your data frame; first column should be location identifier (e.g., depth). |

`cols` |
A vector that identifies the columns to extract (first column automatically extracted). |

`dmin` |
Minimum depth/height/time for plotting. |

`dmax` |
Maximum depth/height/time for plotting. |

`vertical` |
Generate vertical stratigraphic plots? (T or F) If F, will generate horizontal plots. |

`ydir` |
Direction for stratigraphic axis in plots (depth,height,time). If vertical=T, then -1 results in values increasing downwards, while 1 results in values increasing upwards. If vertical=F, then -1 results in values increasing toward the left, while 1 results in values increasing toward the right. |

`nrows` |
Number of rows in figure (if vertical = T; otherwise this will be the number of columns). |

`plotype` |
Type of plot to generate: 1= points and lines, 2 = points, 3 = lines |

`smooth` |
Width (temporal or spatial dimension) for smoothing with a Gaussian kernel (0 = no smoothing); the Gaussian kernel is scaled so that its quartiles (viewed as probability densities, that is, containing 50 percent of the area) are at +/- 25 percent of this value. |

`xgrid` |
For kernal smoothing: (1) evaluate on ORIGINAL sample grid, or (2) evaluate on EVENLY SPACED grid covering range. |

`output` |
Output data frame of smoothed values? (T or F) |

`genplot` |
Generate summary plots (T or F) |

`verbose` |
Verbose output (T or F) |
