erode.hexbin: Erosion of a Hexagon Count Image

Description Usage Arguments Details Value See Also Examples

View source: R/hexbin.s4.R

Description

This erosion algorithm removes counts from hexagon cells at a rate proportional to the cells' exposed surface area. When a cell becomes empty, algorithm removes the emptied cell and notes the removal order. Cell removal increases the exposure of any neighboring cells. The last cell removed is a type of bivariate median.

Usage

2
erode(hbin, cdfcut = 0.5)
erode.hexbin(hbin, cdfcut = 0.5)

Arguments

hbin

an object of class hexbin.

cdfcut

number in (0,1) indicating the confidence level for the limits.

Details

The algorithm extracts high count cells with containing a given fraction (cdfcut) of the total counts. The algorithm extracts all cells if cdfcut=0. The algorithm performs gray-level erosion on the extracted cells. Each erosion cycle removes counts from cells. The counts removed for each cell are a multiple of the cell's exposed-face count. The algorithm choses the multiple so at least one cell will be empty or have a count deficit on each erosion cycle. The erode vector contain an erosion number for each cell. The value of erode is

6*erosion\_cycle\_ at\_ cell\_ removal - cell\_deficit\_at\_removal

Cells with low values are eroded first. The cell with the highest erosion number is a candidate bivariate median. A few ties in erode are common.

Value

An "erodebin" object (with all the slots from hbin) and additionally with high count cells and a component erode that gives the erosion order.
