Create a map of model grid

Description

This function creates a map of the grid points of a climate model used for the study locations and draws lines connecting each study city to its climate model grid point. It currently can only be used for studies within the United States.

Usage

1
map_grid(plot_model, out)

Arguments

plot_model

A character string with the name of the model to plot

out

Character string with pathname to which heat wave files were written by gen_hw_set. Typically, this will be the same pathname as that specified with out when running gen_hw_set.

Value

A ggplot2 object with a map of grid points for the climate model that were used in processing heat waves for the study locations, with a line drawn from each study locations to the grid point used for it.

Note

This function creates a ggplot2 object, so the output can be edited using ggplot2 functions. For this function to work correctly, longitude must be expressed using non-negative decimal degrees when setting up the climate projection files and community location file for gen_hw_set.

Examples

1
2
out <- system.file("extdata/example_results", package = "futureheatwaves")
map_grid(plot_model = "bcc1", out = out)
