Description

The pocket-plot (so named because of its use in detecting pockets of non-stationarity) is a technique necessary to identify a localized area that is atypical with respect to the stationarity model. It is built to exploit the spatial nature of the data through the coordinates of rows and columns (east "X" and north "Y", respectively).

Usage

1
pocket.plot(data, graph, X, Y, Z, Iden, ...)

Arguments

data

data frame should contain the dependent variable and coordinates X and Y, data must be gridded

graph

type of graph associated with the probability or standardized variance plot pocket in the directions north-south or east-west; Probabilities PocketPlot by rows, ie horizontal "south-north" (PPR), Probabilities PocketPlot by columns, ie vertical "east-west" (PPC), PocketPlot of variance by rows, ie horizontal "south-north" (PVR) and PocketPlot of variance by columns, ie vertical "east-west" (PVC)

X

defined by the spatial coordinates

Y

defined by the spatial coordinates

Z

regionalized variable with which you construct the statistics associated with the probability or standardized variance, these are plotted in the so-called pocket plot

Iden

logical. The users can identify the points by themselves, TRUE or FALSE

...

arguments to be passed to ...

Details

For identifying outliers, this function uses a modification of the boxplot.with.outlier.label function, available at http://www.r-statistics.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/boxplot-with-outlier-label-r.txt

Value

returns (or plots) the pocket plot

# Pocket plot in the north-south direction. 
# Units on the vertical axis are root (% coal ash) 

# Plot generated with the function pocket.plot 
# Clearly rows 2, 6, and 8 are atypical 

# This serves as verification that these rows are potentially problematic

# Analysis of local stationarity in probabilities of the coal in south-north direction

# Analysis of local stationarity in probabilities of the coal in east-west direction

# Analysis of local stationarity in variance of the coal in east-west direction
