tempolar {bdvis}R Documentation

Polar plot of temporal data

Description

Representation in polar axis of the distribution of dates in the provided data set.

Usage

tempolar(
  indf = NA,
  timescale = NA,
  title = NA,
  color = NA,
  plottype = NA,
  avg = FALSE
)

Arguments

indf

input data frame containing biodiversity data set

timescale

Temporal scale of the graph, or how are dates aggregated. Accepted values are: d (daily, each feature in the plot represents a day), w (weekly, each feature in the plot represents a week) and m (monthly, each feature in the plot represents a month). Default is d (daily).

title

Title for the graph. Default is "Temporal coverage".

color

color of the graph plot. Default is "red".

plottype

Type of feature. Accepted values are: r (lines), p (polygon) and s (symbols). Default is p (polygon).

avg

If TRUE plots a graph of the average records rather than total numbers. Default is FALSE.

Details

This function returns a plot representing the temporal distribution of records in the data set. This is done by representing dates in a radial axis, with the distance from the center being the amount of records for that particular date. This function allows several arguments indicating different representation types. See the arguments section for an enumeration of them.
