Description

A given function 'FUN' is applied to the data corresponding to each segment of data.

Usage

1
trapply(trackdata, fun, ..., simplify = FALSE, returntrack = FALSE)

Arguments

trackdata

a track data object

fun

a function that is applied to each segment

...

arguments of the function fun

simplify

simplify = TRUE , output is a matrix; simplify = FALSE a list is returned

returntrack

returntrack = FALSE , return a trackdata object

Details

trapply() applies a function iteratively to each segment of a trackdata object without the need for using a for-loop. It can be used to calculate, for example, the mean value of the data values of each segment separately. Any function that can be applied sensibly to trackdata[j]\$data where j is a segment number can be used as the fun argument to trapply(). It is also possible to write your own function and use trapply() to apply it separately to each segment. Care needs to be taken in using trapply() in the following two ways. Firstly, the argument simplify=T should only be set if it can be guaranteed that a vector of the same length or matrix of the same number of rows as the number of segments in the trackdata object is returned. For example, simplify=T can be used in calculating the mean per segment of a trackdata object, because there will only be one value (the mean) per segment. However, simplify should be set to F in calculating the range because here two values are returned per segment. Similarly use simplify=F n smoothing the data in which the number of values returned per segment is different. Secondly, trapply() only applies a function to a single parameter; the function can be used to apply to a function to multi-parameter trackdata such as F1-F4, but then the function needs to be put inside apply() - see examples below.

Value

list or vector or matrix
