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)
