Bayesian changepoint detection and time series decomposition


Plot the result obtained from the beast function.

a "beast" object returned by beast,beast.irreg, or beast123. It may contain one or many time series.


an integer (default to 1 ) or a vector of two integers to specify the index of the time series to plot if x contains results for multiple time series. index is always 1 if x has 1 time series. If x is returned by beast123 with a 2D input,index should be a single integer. If x is from beast123 applied to 3D arrays of time series (e.g., stacked satellite images), index can be a linear index or two subscripts to specify the row and column of the pixel/grid.


a vector of strings indicating the elements or variables of x to plot. Possible vars strings include 'y' (season plus trend), 's' (season component), 't' (trend component), 'o' (outliers), 'scp', 'tcp', 'ocp' (occurrence probability of seasonal/trend/outlier changepoint), 'sorder' (seasonal harmonic order), 'torder' (trend polynomial order), 'samp' (amplitude of seasonality), 'tslp' (slope of trend), 'slpsgn' (probabilities of the slope being positive, zero, and negative) and 'error' (remainder).


a numeric vector of the same length as that of vars to specify the relative heights of subplots of individual variables in vars.


a string vector of the same length as that of vars to specify the colors of individual subplots associated with vars.


a string; the main title.


a string: the x axis title.


a string vector of the same length as that of vars to specify the y axis names of individual subplots associated with vars


cex for the main title


cex for the axis title


a bool scalar. If TRUE, an interactive GUI is used for examining individual elements of x.


character. A string to specify which statistic is used for the Number of ChangePoint (ncp). Five values are possible: 'mean', 'mode', 'median','pct90', and 'max'; the default is 'median'. Individual models sampled by BEAST has a varying dimension (e.g., number of changepoints or knots). For example, if mcmc$samples=10, the numbers of changepoints for the 10 sampled models are assumed to be c(0, 2, 4, 1, 1, 2, 7, 6, 6, 1). The mean ncp will be 3.1 (rounded to 3), the median is 2.5 (2), the mode is 1, and the maximum is 7. The 'max' option plots all the changepoints recorded in out$trend$cp, out$season$cp, or out$outlier$cp; many of these changepoints are bound to be false positives, so do not treat all of them as actual changepoints.


additional parameters to be implemented.


This function creates various plots to demonstrate the results of a beast decomposition. .
