Triangular Plotting

Description

Graphs for a dataframe with 3 columns of positive or null values
triangle.plot is a scatterplot
triangle.biplot is a paired scatterplots
triangle.posipoint, triangle.param, add.position.triangle are utilitaries functions.

Usage

triangle.plot(ta, label = as.character(1:nrow(ta)), clabel = 0, 
    cpoint = 1, draw.line = TRUE, addaxes = FALSE, addmean = FALSE, 
    labeltriangle = TRUE, sub = "", csub = 0, possub = "topright", 
    show.position = TRUE, scale = TRUE, min3 = NULL, max3 = NULL, 
    box = FALSE)
triangle.biplot (ta1, ta2, label = as.character(1:nrow(ta1)), 
    draw.line = TRUE, show.position = TRUE, scale = TRUE)

Arguments

ta, ta1, ta2,

data frame with three columns, will be transformed in percentages by rows

label

a vector of strings of characters for the point labels

clabel

if not NULL, a character size for the labels, used with par("cex")*clabel

cpoint

a character size for plotting the points, used with par("cex")*cpoint. If zero, no points are drawn

draw.line

a logical value indicating whether the lines into the triangle should be drawn

addaxes

a logical value indicating whether the principal axes should be drawn

addmean

a logical value indicating whether the mean should be plotted

labeltriangle

a logical value indicating whether the variable names should be wrote

sub

a string of characters to be inserted as legend

csub

a character size for the legend, used with par("cex")*csub

possub

a string of characters indicating the sub-title position ("topleft", "topright", "bottomleft", "bottomright")

show.position

a logical value indicating whether the used triangle should be shown in the complete one

scale

a logical value indicating whether the smaller equilateral triangle containing the plot should be used

min3

If scale is FALSE, a vector of three values for the minima e.g. c(0.1,0.1,0.1) can be used

max3

If scale is FALSE a vector of three values for the maxima e.g. c(0.9,0.9,0.9) can be used

box

a logical value indicating whether a box around the current plot should be drawn

Value

triangle.plot returns an invisible matrix containing the coordinates used for the plot. The graph can be supplemented in various ways.
