Arguments

...

graphical arguments

at

numeric in [0,1]: which portions/proportions should be marked?

by

numeric in (0,1]: steps between protions/proportions

parts

numeric vector subset of {1,2,3}: the variables to be marked

total

the total amount to be used in labeling

labs

logical: plot the labels?

lines

logical: plot the lines?

unit

mark of the units e.g. "%"

Details

Isoportion lines give lines of the same portion of one of the parts, while isoproportion line gives lines of the same ratio between two parts. The isoproportion lines are straight lines in both the Aitchison and the real geometries of the simplex, while the isoportion lines are not straight in an Aitchison sense (only in the real one). However, note that both types of lines remain straight in the real sense when perturbed (von Eynatten et al., 2002).

Note

Currently IsoLines only works with individual plots. This is mainly due to the fact that I have no idea, what the user interface of this function should look like for multipanel plots. This includes philosophical problems with the meaning of isoportions in case of marginal plots.
