Description Usage Arguments Value Side Effects See Also Examples

Smooth curves and put arrows in the beginning and end. Useful for plotting closed areas, making smooth lines with arrows etc. The function needs dataframe with columns lat and lon. No NA values currently allowed. Uses the functions ns or ps to smooth the curve depending on if the curve is open or closed. Smooths seperatly lat ~ ns(d,df) , lon ~ ns(d,df). d is here distance along the curve. If the same curve is smoothed many times the output is stored the first time and the function called later with smooth=F.

`data` |
Dataframe that must have columns lat and lon. |

`df` |
Degrees of Freedom in smoothing the curve. Default is number of points/2. Maximum allowed df is nrow(data)-1. df="all" gives this value. |

`n` |
How much denser the output data is than the input data. n=10 means that the value of the smoothing spline is predicted at 9 evenly spaced points beetween each pair of data points. Default is n = 10. |

`open` |
Is the curve open or closed. Default open. |

`arrow` |
If there is an arrow in the beginning, end or both of the line segment. Options are "none","start","end","both". |

`col` |
Color of line. |

`lwd` |
Width of line segment. Default is 1. lwd=2 seems to fit well with default size of arrows. |

`size` |
Size of arrow, default 0.2 inches. |

`angle` |
Angle of arrow opening, default 15 degrees. |

`smooth` |
Should the data be smoothed, default is T. |

`plot` |
Should the curve be plotted, default is T. |

`...` |
Other parameters to geolines and geopolygons. |

If smooth=F = the input data is returned, else smoothed inputdata.
