Description

Plot EventData/PolyData, where each unique EID or (PID, SID) describes a point.

plotPoints (data, xlim = NULL, ylim = NULL, projection = FALSE,
            plt = c(0.11, 0.98, 0.12, 0.88), polyProps = NULL,
            cex = NULL, col = NULL, pch = NULL, axes = TRUE,
            tckLab = TRUE, tck = 0.014, tckMinor = 0.5 * tck, ...)

Arguments

data

EventData or PolyData to plot (required).

xlim

range of X-coordinates.

ylim

range of Y-coordinates.

projection

desired projection when PolySet lacks a projection attribute; one of "LL", "UTM", or a numeric value. If Boolean, specifies whether to check polys for a projection attribute.

plt

four element numeric vector (x1, x2, y1, y2) giving the coordinates of the plot region measured as a fraction of the figure region. Set to NULL if mai in par is desired.

polyProps

PolyData specifying which points to plot and their properties. par parameters passed as direct arguments supersede these data.

cex

vector describing character expansion factors (cycled by EID or PID).

col

vector describing colours (cycled by EID or PID).

pch

vector describing plotting characters (cycled by EID or PID).

axes

Boolean value; if TRUE, plot axes.

tckLab

Boolean vector (length 1 or 2); if TRUE, label the major tick marks. If given a two-element vector, the first element describes the tick marks on the x-axis and the second element describes those on the y-axis.

tck

numeric vector (length 1 or 2) describing the length of tick marks as a fraction of the smallest dimension. If tckLab = TRUE, these tick marks will be automatically labelled. If given a two-element vector, the first element describes the tick marks on the x-axis and the second element describes those on the y-axis.

tckMinor

numeric vector (length 1 or 2) describing the length of tick marks as a fraction of the smallest dimension. These tick marks can not be automatically labelled. If given a two-element vector, the first element describes the tick marks on the x-axis and the second element describes those on the y-axis.

...

additional par parameters, or the arguments main, sub, xlab, or ylab for the title function.

Details

This function clips data to xlim and ylim before plotting. It only adds PolyData containing X and Y columns.

The function creates a blank plot when polys equals NULL. In this case, the user must supply both xlim and ylim arguments. Alternatively, it accepts the argument type = "n" as part of ..., which is equivalent to specifying polys = NULL, but requires a PolySet. In both cases, the function's behaviour changes slightly. To resemble the plot function, it plots the border, labels, and other parts according to par parameters such as col.

For additional help on the arguments cex, col, and pch, please see par.

Value

PolyData consisting of the PolyProps used to create the plot.

Note

To satisfy the aspect ratio, this plotting routine resizes the plot region. Consequently, par parameters such as plt, mai, and mar will change. When the function terminates, these changes persist to allow for additions to the plot.
