toTernaryQuaternary: Transform Compositional Data for a Simplex

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note Author(s) Examples

Description

These functions transform a matrix with three or four components to fit into a two- or three-dimensional simplex (triangle or tetrahedron).

toSimplex(x)

toTernary(abc)
toTernaryVectors(c1, c2, c3)

toQuaternary(abcd)
toQuaternaryVectors(c1, c2, c3, c4)

Arguments

x

a matrix-like object with 3 or 4 columns.

abc

a matrix-like object with 3 columns.

abcd

a matrix-like object with 4 columns.

c1

a numeric vector with values of the first component.

c2

a numeric vector with values of the second component.

c3

a numeric vector with values of the third component.

c4

a numeric vector with values of the fourth component.

Details

Most of these functions are only used internally, but sometimes it might be useful to plot “custom” ternary or quaternary graphics.

Note that, apart from toSimplex(), functions do not have any checks, so it is advisable to use this function if elements are added to plots or own graphics are created.

Value

The function returns a matrix object with coordinates in two or three dimensions

Note

In prior versions (up to 0.5-0), an unexported function coord.trafo() was used internally and could also be accessed via DirichletReg:::coord.trafo().

If you have used this in your code, you will get a message that the function is now deprecated and will become defunct in the future. Use toSimplex() instead.
