#' Visualise concurvity between terms in a GAM
#'
#' Plot measures of how much one term in the model could be explained by
#' another. When values are high, one should consider re-running variable
#' selection with one of the offending variables removed to check for stability
#' in term selection.
#'
#' These methods are considered somewhat experimental at this time. Consult
#' [`concurvity`][mgcv::concurvity] for more information on how concurvity
#' measures are calculated.
#'
#' @param model fitted model
#' @param type concurvity measure to plot, see [`concurvity`][mgcv::concurvity]
