stripes(object, groups=NULL, type=c("first", "second", "all"),
        beside=(type!="first"), col=NULL, gp.line=NULL, gp.bar=NULL,
        gp.bar2=NULL, number=TRUE, legend=!is.null(groups),
        ylim=NULL, ylab="distance from centroid",
        margins=c(2,5,3,2), ...)

Arguments

object

An object of class "kcca".

groups

Grouping variable to color-code the stripes. By default cluster membership is used as groups.

type

Plot distance to closest, closest and second-closest or to all centroids?

beside

Logical, make different stripes for different clusters?

col

Vector of colors for clusters or groups.

gp.line, gp.bar, gp.bar2

Graphical parameters for horizontal lines and background rectangular areas, see gpar.

number

Logical, write cluster numbers on x-axis?

legend

Logical, plot a legend for the groups?

ylim, ylab

Graphical parameters for y-axis.

margins

Margin of the plot.

...

Further graphical parameters.

Details

A simple, yet very effective plot for visualizing the distance of each point from its closest and second-closest cluster centroids is a stripes plot. For each of the k clusters we have a rectangular area, which we optionally vertically divide into k smaller rectangles (beside=TRUE). Then we draw a horizontal line segment for each data point marking the distance of the data point from the corresponding centroid.
