shiftvector {calibrate} R Documentation

## Compute a shift vector for a calibrated axis.

### Description

`shiftvector` computes two shift vectors perpendicular to the supplied biplot or scatterplot axis `g`. The vector norm is computed from the two most extreme data points.

### Usage

```shiftvector(g, X, x = c(1, 0), verbose = FALSE)
```

### Arguments

 `g` a biplot or scatterplot axis `X` a n by 2 matrix of scatterplot or biplot coordinates `x` reference axis, (1,0) by default `verbose` print information or not

### Details

`shiftvector` locates the tow most extreme datapoints in the direction perpendicular to axis `g`.

### Value

 `dr` the right (w.r.t. the direction of `g`) shift vector `dl` the left (w.r.t. the direction of `g`) shift vector

### Examples

```X <- matrix(rnorm(100),ncol=2)
Xs <- scale(X)

g <- c(1,1)

plot(Xs[,1],Xs[,2],asp=1,pch=19)
textxy(Xs[,1],Xs[,2],1:nrow(X))

arrows(0,0,g[1],g[2])
text(g[1],g[2],"g",pos=1)

out <- shiftvector(g,X,verbose=TRUE)
dr <- out\$dr
dl <- out\$dl

arrows(0,0,dl[1],dl[2])
text(dl[1],dl[2],"dl",pos=1)

arrows(0,0,dr[1],dr[2])
text(dr[1],dr[2],"dr",pos=1)
```
