plot_sde: Plot the Standard Deviation Ellipse

Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

This function plots the SDE as an ellipse centred on the mean/weighted/user-defined centre of a set of point observations. The plot characterizes the dispersion of point observations along two orthogonal axes.

Boolean: Set to TRUE to create a new plot. Set to FALSE to overlay current plot.

plotSDEaxes

Boolean: Set to TRUE if the orthogonal axes through the centroid are to be plotted

plotweightedpts

Boolean: Set to TRUE if the weighted point observations are to be plotted

weightedpts.col

Specify a colour for the weighted point observations

weightedpts.pch

Specify a plotting symbol for the weighted point observations

plotpoints

Boolean: Set to TRUE if the point observations are to be plotted

points.col

Specify a colour for the point observations

points.pch

Specify a plotting symbol for the point observations

plotcentre

Boolean: Set to TRUE if the mean/weighted/user-defined centre is to be plotted

centre.col

Specify a colour for the centre

centre.pch

Specify a plotting symbol for the centre

titletxt

A string to indicate the title on the plot

xaxis

A string to label the x-axis of the plot

yaxis

A string to label the y-axis of the plot

sde.col

Specify a line colour for the SDE circle

sde.lwd

Arguments to be passed to graphical parameters

Details

The r.SDE object (generated in calc_sde function) is required to plot the SDE circle.
