# Plot extreme value statistics

### Description

Plots distributions fitted by L-moments and adds plotting positions by Weibull and Gringorton.

### Usage

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 | ```
distLextremePlot(dlf, selection = NULL, order = FALSE, add = FALSE,
nbest = 5, log = FALSE, xlim = NULL, ylim = NULL, las = 1,
main = dlf$datname, xlab = "Return Period RP [a]",
ylab = "Discharge HQ [m\U00B3/s]", PPcol = "black", PPpch = c(16, 3),
PPcex = 1, coldist = berryFunctions::rainbow2(nbest), lty = 1,
lwd = 1, pch = NA, cex = 1, n_pch = 15, legend = TRUE,
legargs = NULL, quiet = FALSE, ...)
``` |

### Arguments

`dlf` |
List as returned by |

`selection` |
Selection of distributions. Character vector with type as in |

`order` |
If selection is given, should legend and colors be ordered by gof anyways? DEFAULT: FALSE |

`add` |
If TRUE, plot is not called before adding lines. This lets you add lines to an existing plot. DEFAULT: FALSE |

`nbest` |
Number of distributions plotted, in order of goodness of fit. Overwritten internally if selection is given. DEFAULT: 5 |

`log` |
Logarithmic x-axis? DEFAULT: FALSE |

`xlim` |
X-axis limits. DEFAULT: xlim of plotting positions |

`ylim` |
Y-lim. DEFAULT: from min to extended max |

`las` |
LabelAxisStyle to orient labels, see |

`main` |
Title of plot. DEFAULT: dlf$datname |

`xlab` |
X axis label. DEFAULT: "Return Period RP [a]" |

`ylab` |
Y axis label. Please note that the ubuntu pdf viewer might be unable to display unicode superscript. DEFAULT: "Discharge HQ [m3/s]" |

`PPcol` |
Plotting Position point colors, vector of length two for Weibull and Gringorton, recycled. PP are not used for fitting distributions, but for plotting only. DEFAULT: "black" |

`PPpch` |
point characters for plotting positions after Weibull and Grongorton, respectively. NA to suppress in plot and legend. DEFAULT: c(16,3) |

`PPcex` |
Character EXpansion of plotting points. DEFAULT: 1 |

`coldist` |
Color for each distribution added with |

`lty` |
Line TYpe for plotted distributions. Is recycled to from a vector of length nbest, i.e. a value for each distribution function drawn. DEFAULT: 1 |

`lwd` |
Line WiDth of distribution lines. Recycled vector of length nbest. DEFAULT: 1 |

`pch` |
Point CHaracter of points added at regular intervals. NA to suppress. Recycled vector of length nbest. DEFAULT: NA |

`cex` |
if pch != NA, size of points. Recycled vector of length nbest. DEFAULT: 1 |

`n_pch` |
Number of points spread evenly along the line. Recycled vector of length nbest. DEFAULT: 15 |

`legend` |
Logical. Add a legend? DEFAULT: TRUE |

`legargs` |
list of arguments passed to |

`quiet` |
Suppress notes? DEFAULT: FALSE |

`...` |
Further arguments passed to |
