plotCorrelation-methods: It draws both circos or matrix plot for the correlation in...

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples


While the circos plot can be used to see the general behaviours intra and extra families of exposures, the matrix plot allows for a detailed view of the correlations within an ExposomeCorr object.


plotCorrelation(object, type = "circos", ...)



ExposomeCorr which correlations will be plotted.


(default "circos") Can take both "circos" or "matrix".


Arguments given to corrplot of package corrplot if a matrix is draw. Moreover extra arguments are can be passed to inner functions to draw both the matrix and the circos of correlations.
