View source: R/gradLinkTypoLayer.R

Description

Plot a layer of colored and graduated links. Links are plotted according to discrete classes of widths. Colors depend on a discrete variable of categories.

Arguments

x

an sf object, a simple feature collection.

df

a data frame that contains identifiers of starting and ending points and variables.

xid

identifier fields in x, character vector of length 2, default to the 2 first columns. (optional)

dfid

identifier fields in df, character vector of length 2, default to the two first columns. (optional)

var

name of the variable used to plot the links widths.

breaks

break values in sorted order to indicate the intervals for assigning the lines widths.

lwd

vector of widths (classes of widths).

var2

name of the variable used to plot the links colors.

col

color of the links.

colNA

no data color.

legend.title.cex

size of the legend title.

legend.values.cex

size of the values in the legend.

legend.values.rnd

number of decimal places of the values in the legend.

legend.var.pos

position of the legend, one of "topleft", "top", "topright", "right", "bottomright", "bottom", "bottomleft", "left" or a vector of two coordinates in map units (c(x, y)).

legend.var.title.txt

title of the legend (numeric data).

legend.var.frame

whether to add a frame to the legend (TRUE) or not (FALSE).

legend.var2.pos

position of the legend, one of "topleft", "top", "topright", "right", "bottomright", "bottom", "bottomleft", "left" or a vector of two coordinates in map units (c(x, y)).

legend.var2.title.txt

title of the legend (factor data).

legend.var2.values.order

values order in the legend, a character vector that matches var modalities. Colors will be affected following this order.

legend.var2.nodata

text for "no data" values

legend.var2.frame

whether to add a frame to the legend (TRUE) or not (FALSE).

add

whether to add the layer to an existing plot (TRUE) or not (FALSE).

spdf

defunct.

spdfid

defunct.

spdfids

defunct.

spdfide

defunct.

dfids

defunct.

dfide

defunct.

Note

Unlike most of cartography functions, identifiers fields are mandatory.
