Description

Conversion for Circular Data from one coordinate/units system to another one. For back compatibility, without arguments the function converts data from degrees to radians.

Usage

1
2
conversion.circular(x, units = c("radians", "degrees", "hours"), type = NULL, 
  template = NULL, modulo = NULL, zero = NULL, rotation = NULL)

Arguments

x

an object of class circular.

units

unit of the transformed data.

type

type of the transformed data. If NULL no action is performed.

template

template of the tranformed data. If NULL no action is performed.

modulo

modulo of the transformed data. If NULL no action is performed.

zero

zero of the tranformed data. If NULL no action is performed.

rotation

rotation of the tranformed data. If NULL no action is performed.

Value

an object of class circular with the specified unit of measure, modulo, zero and rotation.

deg and rad. If you want to set the properties of an object instead to tranform it, you can use circular or circularp<-.

####### the data converted.
plot(y)
z <- conversion.circular(x, units="degrees", zero=pi) # only the zero is changed and 
####### the data converted.
plot(z)
w <- conversion.circular(x, zero=pi, rotation="clock") # zero and rotation is 
####### changed and the data converted.
