# conversion.circular: Unit of Measure Conversion for Circular Data and other... In circular: Circular Statistics

## 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.

## Author(s)

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

## Examples

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12``` ```x <- rvonmises(n=10, mu=circular(0), kappa=9, control.circular=list(units="degrees")) par(mfcol=c(2, 2)) plot(x) y <- conversion.circular(x) # only the unit is changed (to radians) and ####### 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. plot(w) ```

### Example output

The following objects are masked from ‘package:stats’:
