hyperplot: Annotate Outliers in a Scatterplot via an HTML Image-Map

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/plots.R

Description

This simple function makes R scatter plots interactive by creating an image and wrapping HTML around it: creating a hyperlinked hyperplot. Hover over the points to see what each is. Click to connect to a table below that will tell you more about each point (if browse ==TRUE).

Usage

hyperplot(x, y = NULL, annout = 1:length(x), 
                 name ="hyperplot.imagemap", w = 72 * 8, h = 72 * 6, 
                 link ="internal", browse = TRUE, cex = 1, ...)                 

Arguments

x

a plot-able object, a numeric vector or the name of a numeric vector column in annout.

y

a numeric vector or the name of a numeric vector column in annout. Must be the same length as x.

annout

a named data.frame or table of outliers to annotate the points in the plot. 'x' and 'y' params can indicate column names or numbers of annout.

name

base name of the image & html (map) page that get generated.

w

width of the png image in inches.

h

height of the png image in inches.

link

create a linked lookup table from image to the annout table.

browse

load the html page automatically via R.

cex

character expansion for points

...

other paramters passed on to plot()

Value

HTML page with annotation mapped image

## simplest version
hyperplot(x,y, main=main.hov)

## same but with annotations being supplied as a paramter (instead of names on x)
names(x) <- NULL
hyperplot(x,y, annout=toupper(letters), main=main.hov)

## annotate only a subset 
hyperplot(x,y, annout=1:13, col=cols[rep(c(T,F), each=13)+1],
  main=paste(main.hov,main.subsets,sep='\n'))


########################
## annout as dataframe #
########################
## x and y as vectors 
x <- nv(x,toupper(letters)) # reinstate the names of x
df <- data.frame(ab=rep(c('a','b'),13),row.names=toupper(letters))
hyperplot(x,y, annout=df, 
                main=paste(main.hov, main.click.in, sep='\n'))

## x and y as names of columns in df
df <- cbind.data.frame(data.frame(x=x, y=y), df)
hyperplot(x='x',y='y', annout=df, 
                main=paste(main.hov, main.click.in, sep='\n'))

## using 'link' column name parameter to specify external links
df <- cbind.data.frame(df, 
            data.frame(url=ext.url, stringsAsFactors=FALSE))
hyperplot(x='x',y='y', annout=df, link='url', 
                main=paste(main.hov, main.click.out,sep='\n'))

## using reserved column name 'out' as a way to annotate a subset
df <- cbind.data.frame(df, data.frame(out=rep(c(TRUE,FALSE), each=13)))
hyperplot(x='x',y='y', annout=df, col=cols[df$out+1], 
                main=paste(main.hov, main.click.in, main.subsets,sep='\n'))
