lines.variomodel: Adds a Line with a Variogram Model to a Variogram Plot

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

This function adds a line with a variogram model specifyed by the user to a current variogram plot. The variogram is specifyed either by passing a list with values for the variogram elements or using each argument in the function.

## S3 method for class 'variomodel'
lines(x, ...)
## Default S3 method:
lines.variomodel(x, cov.model, cov.pars, nugget, kappa,
                          max.dist, scaled = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

a list with the values for the following components: cov.model, cov.pars, nugget, kappa , max.dist; or a numeric vector with values for x-axis values for the variogram (distances). This argument is not required if the other arguments in the function are provided, otherwise is compulsory. If a list is provided the arguments which match the list elements are ignored.

cov.model

a string with the type of the variogram function. See documentation of cov.spatial for further details.

cov.pars

a vector or matrix with the values for the partial sill (sigmasq) and range (phi) parameters.

nugget

a scalar with the value of the nugget (tausq) parameter.

kappa

a scalar with the value of the smoothness (kappa) parameters. Only required if cov.model is one of the following: "matern", "powered.exponential", "cauchy" and "gneiting.matern"

max.dist

maximum distance (x-axis) to compute and draw the line representing the variogram model. If a list is provided in x the default is the distance given by x$max.dist. If a vector is provided in x it takes max(x).

scaled

logical. If TRUE the total sill in the plot is equals to 1.

...

arguments to be passed to the function curve.

Details

Adds a line with a variogram model to a plot. In conjuction with plot.variogram can be used for instance to compare sample variograms against fitted models returned by variofit and/or likfit.

Value

A line with a variogram model is added to a plot on the current graphics device. No values are returned.
